For most of my adult life, I have lived in clothing made by CP Shades.. The colors, fabrics, loose comfortable styling and pricing are some of the reasons I favor the line. I have a navy rayon pajama style pants suit that looks as good today as the day I bought it some time in the late 80s.
Instead of fall shopping, I decided to continue in my DIY direction and take some of my older CP Shades shirts that I no longer wear and transform them into something new.
I did it over several days with lots of stops and starts. Even though I haven’t worn any of these shirts in some time, fear takes over making it difficult to cut into something I love.
