You could embellish it to look like a necktie...those are cute.

I got DS a shirt with blue sleeves and first love as the body. Some people think it's girly, but I don't see why hearts have to be girly? Anyway, I think it's adorable

Ooh, that's a great idea for the necktie! I've always wanted to do a shirt like that, and that would work perfect for the retro hearts!
