Musical T-shirt

March 25, 2010

A little while ago a dear friend I have has for years asked me to experiment with a musical shirt. Her daughters both play strings instruments in different ensembles around the place, and she was after a shirt that could possibly be used for performances.

My starting point was the Abix Swirl. It needed to be black, capture music and have a strings feel.

I have come up with this.

My in house (10 and 11 year olds) critics said it looked nothing like music or a violin. So now I am asking my on-line critics.

    Definitely musical. Though my first thought was guitar. Maybe add a bow?
    Otherwise, I love it!

    Thanks Caroline.
    I had a conversation with a professional musician today, and she said it needed to be more sparkly!
    I will keep trying.

    I love it! But it’s very subtle. Maybe a few more buttons around the body?

  5. […] clever (not really) nieces. They both play strings very well and wanted some performance shirts. My first attempt wasn’t quite right and I asked for your feedback. It was very helpful. Thank you. Since then, […]
