More Leather Work

This is probably the nicest shirt I ever made, It's certainly one of the most complex. All the fringe doubles as the seam. In other words the seam is made by punching a double row of holes in one seam edge, and the fringe, on the other seam edge, is threaded through the holes and a knot is tied . It's one of the oldest ways to make a garment.

I used to tell people that Leather work is the second oldest profession. It came right after prostitution.
