Finishing the shirt

The large flat warp seemed to need side panels, to transform it into a shirt. I created the side panels together, side by side.

This way I know that the two side panels are the same size.

The two panels were ‘cut apart’ by removing a single thread. Well, actually I did not completely remove that thread, I used it to join one side of one of the panels to the body. Here’s the finished shirt.

The design was inspired by Coptic motifs.
