Description

This summer, I was lucky enough to spend a little over a month at my parents’ house in the US. A good chunk of my time was spent sewing, and part of that for my dad(!). He has one particular shirt that he loves (see the last photo, in the parking garage at the airport), and I replicated it into three versions. This is the third. It’s much more subdued than the other two versions, but still interesting, and the fabric is really soft. It has a largeish pocket and 5/8" (1 1/2 cm) buttons) rather than the standard 3/8" because he has arthritis in his hands and the larger ones are easier for him to manage. One thing, anyone notice what’s wrong with this shirt? I didn’t. But he did as soon as he put it on! (Answer in the comments) I’ll add a picture of him in it as soon as he gets around to taking one and sending it to me.

    That riddle is probably impossible to answer from these photos. It will be easier when I have one of him wearing it. It laps incorrectly, and the buttons and buttonholes are reversed. I really hope it doesn’t affect his willingness to wear it. If so I’ll have to fix it by darning the buttonholes closed and sewing the buttons on top of them.
