A Liberty Bruyère shirt

My recent blog “resurrection” was something I had in mind for a long time, and this shirt is one piece of evidence. I made it and photographed it in January… and then I never posted it. But I’ve been wearing it quite a bit, so I figured it deserved its own moment of glory.

Burdastyle magazine 12/2018

I received my copy in the mail last week, so here I am, already a bit late, but ready to spew some judgment on Burda.
