Well, that's just peachy!

So, recently, my girlfriend took a beginner sewing class. She ended up making a nice apron for herself that turned out just fantastic. But before the end product was made, the instructor had her do some experiments to get used to the machine, the procedures, the materials, etc, etc. She received a piece of cheapish material to practice on before moving on the the actual class piece. While putting away clothes I came across her practice piece and was hit with an idea. As you can see, it's a simple piece of peach/orange gingham that she had sewn together, but I thought to myself that it would make a great pocket square (see previous entry). THEN the little cogs in my brain started turning a little bit more and had the idea of a pseudo suedehead number...a peach gingham beagle collared shirt with a pocket square made of the same material. Turn an ordinary black suit into a warmer weather streetwise outfit. So, the next step is to locate more of the material and then have the shirt and square made. Will update as this progresses!
