After the failure of my first attempt, I decided to start from scratch. My idea was to make several bicycle shirts for sale, so I decided to go for a complete Made by Julianne package. Voila, the new tee shirts I have made!
Aaaaaand they’re available on Etsy!
That’s right, each shirt is 100% made by me! I picked up several yards of super-soft, fine jersey in the Fashion District with our friend Svetlana and then developed a pattern that would be flattering to many different shapes. Each shirt is sewn individually, and then the art is applied with heat-set fabric ink.
While the bicycle design on each shirt is very similar, there are differences in each drawing: the bicycle, the pattern rainbow, the field of flowers, and the glowing sun changes from shirt to shirt.
I also made a point of using a ladies’ classic bike frame, since most images of bicycles feature men’s bikes with a horizontal bar across the frame. I think that’s kind of ugly. I love my vintage Schwinn and Galaxy Flyer and wanted a way to declare that passion even when I’m not on my wheels.
I’ll be selling these Freret Market in NOLA. If you need to have your own my Etsy shop is always open.
