In which I (heavily) alter a truly gigantic men’s shirt. I shortened the sleeves, and took in the side and shoulder seams. And added pockets! Pockets are the best. The only downside: I can’t wear it by itself. Not only is it on the shorter side, the front opens up because the buttonholes stop right at crotch level. Ah, well, I can always add another button.
I think it’s a cotton poly blend. From Goodwill.
