Dress Shirt for Hershy

2:27 PM


Today you get to meet the most popular person in our family, our little brother Herschel. I think the best word to describe him is intense. Everything about him is intense, his strength, his opinions, his pain tolerance, and his hatred of feet and clowns. As a three year old, Herschel had special rules, like "No playing on the roof," and "No playing with knives." By the time he was 18 he had broken his nose eleven times; he describes a broken nose as "inconvenient, like having your shoe come untied." He has never started a fight, but he has never lost one either. He can tear out a tile floor in 20 minutes, chop down a 40 foot pine tree by himself, or have a chicken butchered and cleaned before you can heat up the oven. This kid is incredible.

Well, for the past few years, all of his clothing could fit in to one bag, so I decided to add a new piece to his wardrobe. I love the contrasting collar and cuffs on this shirt. He has wide shoulders and long arms, so a custom-fit shirt was a refreshing change for him.

  2. I love how everything you make looks like it came from a store! Can you share some of your tips with us? I still don't know what will turn my sewing from looking handmade to looking tailored. Beautiful job!
