When I post my video diaries I always get comments about my Laura clothes. No, not my period dresses, but my Laura Ingalls Wilder t-shirts that I wear for travel and Laura trips. I thought everyone might enjoy a closer look at them. So enjoy our monthly series where we look at a Laura shirt.
Shirt of the Month
This month we continue with a unique shirt. This one wasn’t purchased at a Laura homesite at all.Although there are lots of different designs of Laura shirts almost all of them will be regular t-shirts with a few sweatshirts thrown in. You almost will never see tanks or other kinds of shirts. I personally like a polo shirt occassionally.
One of the most comfortable shirts I’ve ever owned came from an old job and rather than throw it away I covered up their logo with a patch. It worked well that I’ve tried it was a couple of other shirts. This green shirt has a Walnut Grove patch on it. I picked it because I thought the yellow background and brown image complemented the olive green of the shirt.
