Dean Owens' shirt in 'Lady Paisley'

Dean Owens’ shirt in ‘Lady Paisley’

One of the things I love about making a shirt to commission for a musician is being able to listen to them play while I sew. It’s the perfect coming together of two of my favourite things: clothes and music.

The Scottish singer/songwriter Dean Owens picked out this wonderful Liberty print during a break between sets when he played The Greys in Brighton a few weeks ago. It’s called ‘Lady Paisley’; there are paisley motifs hidden everywhere in those beautiful Indian-style floral motifs. Placing the pattern was quite a challenge but as it came together, I really loved it. I cut the back yoke to reflect the pattern.

While I cut, piped and sewed I listen to Dean’s beautiful and moving latest album Into The Sea:

and to his acoustic album of songs by and about Johnny Cash, Cashback. It’s a long time favourite album and includes one of my favourite covers of one of my favourite Johnny Cash songs, I Still Miss Someone.
