One of the many details I love about Robert Graham shirts is the subtle — or not so subtle — embroidery, on the inside yoke and sometimes on either side of the placket. And since I have a new embroidery machine, why not put it to good use?! I initially purchased it with the thought that I would make my own clothing labels but have found many more uses for it.
I plan to embroider the inside yoke of my men’s shirt , the design has to be light and airy, so last night I downloaded more embroidery files from Embroidery Library Inc., my favorite downloadable site. Who doesn’t love a product you don’t have to pay shipping/taxes and duties for?! Here are the designs I’m considering:
1) Golden Flower and Paisley
2) Golden Flower and Paisley II
3) Floral Filigree 1
4) Floral Filigree 2
5) Simple Swirls
6) Simple Symmetry Medallion 2
Please give me you opinion on which one you’d choose for a Robert Graham-esque shirt? I’m not 100% sure if the fabric will be solid turquoise or skinny stripes or something else and the thread colour will obviously change.
