This shirt consists of a patterned fabric which has been embroidered with the phrase ‘feelings are like tapeworms’ which has then been stitched to the chest of the shirt. This method of adornment is something I’ve tinkered with previously, but I think this is a new pinnacle. I love the fabric, thread color. It takes a bit of time and work to assemble, but I find the final result to be steeped in a sense of a little bit of “classy.”

I hope you like it. When I asked Lisa if I could quote her she said, “that’s awesome! i love it! i said it and i still agree with it. i’d stand by the statement and would even wear it on a shirt.”

[EDIT 6/04/2008] UPDATE! Here are some additional shots of the shirt. Actually being worn! Out in the sun, even. I thought it might be helpful to visualize, give a more accurate idea of what this one looks like…
