It's Toile About You

Toile de Jouy, aka "toile" (Twahl), is a style of fabric consisting of fairly complex scenes drawn in black, red, or blue, usually on off-white backgrounds.



From a distance it looks like a cute vintage toile pattern.

But up close it is far more quaint than that!



To be belt printed a darkish blue on a cream shirt.

I loled. Not sure if I like it on a tee since there is almost too much going on, but it is hilarious.

SlinkyMalinki

Haha, wish I had legions of fans to tote all the way to winning. Then again, I saw this on your blog first, so I guess I'm one of them voting 5!!
:) Nice work

LadyLuna

Ahahaha! This is hilarious!
The effect only works when close up, so I wonder how many people (upon viewing the shirt) would get it.
Still, I'd totally buy it.

I have been thinking of doing Toile de Jouy style pattern using my drawings for awhile I really should get round to it, doubt I will sub it as shirt design though.

I do like yours its cool and funny great stuff.

aaaaalison

$5 $5 $5 $5!
Emmy, I want to be your meat billboard.

chatstew

Ffff I want this so bad, I hope it wins or however this stuff works!

accelagirl

totally voted!!! also, i want to beat up the "fake comment" accusers. THATS RIGHT, I SAID I WANTED TO BEAT YALL UP.

INTERNET THREATS FROM AN INTERNET TOUGH GUY.

natticus54

probably one of the most incredible ideas i've ever seen!, if only threadless sold blouses!!!

Registered99

how do i have this with me now?

Cuppkins

FUH! I want this shirt SO BAD.

emilybright

okay seriously i need this to be on my body ASAP

Fuzyhamster

Do comments raise the likelyhood of a design getting printed? To my knowledge, they don't. Why does it matter if a comment is fake or not? You just cannot comprehend the vastness of Emmy's internet fandom. =O

queenchelsea

buying asap mmhmm yes plox

noheartbeats

I love toile prints and I love this! I want this as wallpaper for my room. :D

Strubisatoaster

I love it because it's such a departure from a lot of the usual Threadless fare of lame visual puns, parodies and updates on pop culture stuff, etc. It's classy and hilarious and I am so anxious for the voting to be over!

SillydogTheGreat

Oy your shirt is absolutely fabulosa! I'd defiantely buy it! +5

fake comment alert

I love this shirt with all of my heart and soul. I want to buy it so badly I would cut off both arms and sell them to desperate arm merchants who would somehow make it possible for this shirt to exist. For we would all be topless if not for those gallantly relentless arm merchants.

Oh, I would absolutely DIE if this shirt were not made a reality. I honestly truly promise that I love this shirt. I have voted it a $5 and check marked the box that said I would also buy it as a tee, just in case people were confused about the part where I said I wanted it as a SHIRT.

Please, please, pretty please with sugar dumplings on top. Make. This. Shirt. Happen.

Thank you.

P.S. I was joking when I used the fake comment alert. And Emmy is awesome.

KatieJRice

I desperately need this shirt.

Kasai

I want this shirt, fiercely and intensely. MAKE IT SO, THREADLESS.

watermelan

fffff this is awesome. I would mo' def buy one.

And whoever suggested a hoodie, I SECOND THAT.

Japanties

My favorite is 'stop at once, dog!'. Cute.

leckalou123

Methinks fake comment suggester people are jealous of the awesomeness of the design and your online popularity. Whatevs.

I want this so badly it makes my brain hurt.
