I don't like the style. Especially not at that price.

@Greeneyedlady21 Don't like it and sure hate that price.  And I haven't bought anything that needs dry cleaning in 40 years!!

Think I better jump on this before they are all gone and an additional few for my gift closet,  NOT  😂

 

Not a fan of this shirt at all.

I do like the idea of recycling old fabric, and using sentimental items to do that.

@Greeneyedlady21 I like it. I'd never afford it, but the placement of the embroidery is interesting to me. Very clever IMO.

That shirt makes me think of that old Dolly Parton song, Coat of Many Colors.

@Greeneyedlady21   This particular shirt is not my cup of tea but I'm not surprised to see the price point for the designer item at Nordstrom.  The store has always been a pricey and in my area the store closed during the pandemic.  It was one of the anchor stores of a large shopping mall in central NJ.  Nordstrom was always pricey but had some of the best customer service you could ever ask for.

Re: Embroidered Napkin Cotton Shirt

There was a time when I often walked through my local Nordies just to look at the clothes costing that price and above.  My idea of a "retail museum."

 

Then I would go shop in their more moderately priced department.  Recently even that department hasn't made me interested enough to buy often.

Re: Embroidered Napkin Cotton Shirt

It sure is interesting.  I wouldn't wear it.  It does remind me of patchwork quilt.  It's different.  I like different, but not this one.  I do see you noted that it is sustainable in the fact that they used older fabrics to fashion this.  Does this mean it's one of a kind?  I love cotton for summer, but I'd only be able to wear the one shirt all summer long.
