i'll post more pictures of the finished shirt soon. especially once i get a chance to wear it in the heat and get it to its final, trimmed state.
note: i had not really made clothes before this. i have sewn one horrible, ill-fitting pair of pants, and made a few pairs of passable underwear. and of course knitted a few hats/scarves/mittens/whatever. but tailoring is a whole 'nother adventure. so if you're telling yourself 'oh no way could i ever do that' - get over it.
