A Pretty White Shirt

Here's my latest charity shop find, a white shirt from Day Birger et Mikkelsen (click to enlarge):


It only just got out of the laundry basket where its been spending the better part of an eternity (I don't wash whites all that often). I got the shirt with a 50% discount because it had some stains on it, but I made the stains disappear by smearing them with liberal amounts of washing up liquid and throwing the shirt in the laundry basket, leaving the liquid to work its quiet magic there for a couple of months. The shirt has some really nice pleated details at the top. The pleats have been disturbed by bits of white thread that have been sewn across them at various points adding, for want of a better explanation, the prettiest sliced ruffled effect to the shirt.
