jack sparrow eat your heart out

tear repaired with patch on the inside

shirt as a whole; what I particularly like is that the shirt has kept the original lightness, the original looked like this
patch on the inside

details of seams: I have handsewn over the machine stitchted seams, not to hide them, but to acknowledge   their exsistence

detail of back, more pics here

detail of front: plackets stitched and the 'shape-seams' (correct term?) emphasized with stitching 

the Jack Sparrow shirt is my first finished project for 
Jude Hill's online Contemporary Boro 2 class; more pics of the shirt's evolution  here.
A labour of love, needlepricks, excitement and frustration, have already gotten started on the next project(s)....
