Uber picked the pattern (I gave him 3 options and this was his favorite) All the blues are different shirting material... which is much harder to find than you would think. My mum located almost all of it and finally just sent me some new men's shirts. Of course it would be better if you could use discards from your husbands wardrobe... but that wasn't a possibility for us... Uber didn't have anything that was worn out. Because of the lack of material I decided to do the alternating linen and shirting stripes.
I am pretty stoked with how it turned out (the picture being the wrong way is annoying!). It is a little quieter and mellow then I was really going for... but I am not done with it yet so we will see what I can do to liven it up.
