Shirt Recreation

Whilst living abroad I of course purchased some clothes in the local shops. One of my all time favourites is the green top shown below.
It is made out of 100% viscose and features very nice braiding details.

Sadly it has suffered quite a bit over time and should now not be worn outside my home (courtesy of a few small holes that can no longer be concealed). So I decided to try and recreate it.
Given my missing experience in sewing clothes it was quite an adventure…
I traced the outline of the original shirt onto paper and cut my fabric accordingly (I used cheap jersey rib fabric for this first try – the nice viscose one had to wait for the second try). I also braided three quite long strips of fabric, as the braid on the shirt is one continuous piece. I added a bit of lighter fabric for some contrast.

So, here is the finished product! And it fits! I had to tweak the armholes quite a bit though…

Below you can see the front and back of the finished shirt. =)
