i want this vintage fabric to be some kind of awesome wool blend, but truth be told, it's probably polyester. meh. and the save the day story? when all i had left was the collar, i burned the right shoulder with the iron! what?! i was a little heartbroken, but kept my cool and went straight to bed. the next day i cut out a piece of fabric for a yoke in back like a western-style shirt and i Saved The Shirt. and then i forgot to take picture of that. maybe i'll add it later.
