Working on my prototype line for aletheia Junkyard – it seems like a pretty simple process, but I’m running into lots of problems to solve. First of all, can you get it over a baby head?? Can the graphic be read? Are the sleeves a perfect fit?

Not to mention the construction details – snap placket or no snap placket? Clean finish techniques? and how to construct them in enough time that I won’t have to charge $50 for a recycled T shirt?!

Stay tuned, I guess.
