He bought a bunch of cheap shirts online. I told him to go for blue for the goalie, but he decided salmon would clash 'better' with the red stripe. We went down Brick Lane for 3 metres of slightly silky red fabric.
To fit the stripe into the seams, we had to cut open the shirts on one side, and cut into the seam on the other sleeve.
Paul made cardboard templates for the numbers while I was adding the stripes. He then cut them out of cloth and I appliqued them on to the backs.
Al got sent out for more red thread from SewAmazing on Roman Road - sewing shops are almost worse than chippies for badly punned names.
While I was going through the final massive sewing slog (six shirts!), Paul and Al updated the logo on Photoshop and printed it onto transfer paper which Paul ironed on.
