I imagined this shirt in my head for months.
First, I bought the fish part which is hand embroidered
by one of our local indians the kunas or gunas.

Then I hunted down printed cotton fabric in similar colors
and the ribbon.
It took about 7 months and about 80.00 USD to get these three things
but, the most important was missing: a good dressmaker.
Luckily for me, my grandmother's 92 year old friend sews beautifully
and she made the shirt for me, with only one condition: I could not tell
anyone that she had made it for me, as she is long retired and does not sew anymore.
I could not keep the secret.
