In the Godfather: Part II Robert De Niro wears an amazing shirt in multiple scenes. It's dusty blue with a contrasting navy blue collar, cuffs, front placket, and welt pockets. Every time Drew and I watch the movie, we're both drooling over the shirt, so I decided to make it for him.
The only blue cotton I had on hand was pastel Easter egg blue, so to get the dusty shade I wanted I just gave the fabric a single quick dip in black dye and it turned out surprisingly perfect. I love the extra large Italian style collar, and it was fun to do the slanted welt pockets.
