Hawaiian shirt

I sewed!  When Aimee posted this gorgeous tiki fabric on Spoonflower, I knew I wanted to do a Hawaiian shirt out of it.

At my friend Caitlin's suggestion, I used Simplicity 5581.  I think the sizing runs big, so if you're not sure what size to make, I think I would size down.  My husband is usually a solid medium and I think the resulting shirt is a little big - but on the other hand, Hawaiian shirts are often layered and are supposed to be roomy.

I found green vintage buttons in my stash to go with the mid-century color palette and theme. I'm really happy with how it turned out!  I need to get better pics, but for now....
