the shit, II

some of you may remember “the shit”, a much admired and talked about item of clothing made from a shirt from the local bin…..

I hate to waste fabric, so I kept the collar and cuffs and sleeves for future ideas. Then I had an idea, only one mind you, but a good one. I took an old long-sleeved top (slightly stained) that I didn’t wear anymore, mostly because the arms seemed too short, I hate too short arms, I’m always trying to pull them down, it’s a comfort thing I guess. So this is what I came up with,

it was a bit fiddly and I didn’t do it very well, but it’s a good start, the look is a bit preppy, but thats ok, preppy meets farm hand is OK, isn’t it?

    downright bloody chic I say. makes me ashamed of what I can be seen working in (although I did think I was doing ok with the city brothers' business shirt cast offs until simon stole them all)

    you are so damn productive. honestly I read your blog and think “that's the life I want/thought I was getting”
