Truckin down to NYC, the Grateful Dead have been a part of my eclectic music collection, so take a load off…and read my post… I promise I didn’t inhale.
The shirt is a lightweight cotton that reminded me of all the iconic artwork created over the decades of faithful Dead Heads. Here is a detail of the shirt fabric.
Perfect for the hot weather. I finished the double ruffle sleeves with the serger.
I made the shorts out of a cotton that looked like tie dye and the side pockets are a nice detail.
But the look wouldn’t be complete without a proper skull – so we headed outdoors to Riverside Park South.
These items worn together is my colorful salute to the Grateful Dead. Peace, Love & Happiness.
