Simon got this Patagonia shirt long time ago. They are not cheap, but they were used heavily for many years, until a whole appear in a sleeve, so I decided to make a shirt for Shem. I had a lot of fun making it. There is something liberating about using a rag for a project: if it comes out ok is ok, if not, nothing was lost.
The idea was to use as much of the original shirt details, like the collar and the front seams and buttons. I thought that it was going to be a failure, but I managed quite well.
