My work shirt | Camisa de trabalho

I've had it for so many years that it's falling apart.
As I am unable to part with it, I'm sewing it with circles of crochet and it's becoming increasingly beautiful.
Tenho-a  à tantos anos que se está a desfazer.
Como sou incapaz de me separar dela vou-lhe pregando rodelas de crochet e está cada vez mais bonita.

Your shirt is the perfect metaphor
for an artist's life...(que Strauss music)
Ordinary shirt + lots of work = specialt relationship
special relationship is seen, valued, cared for, nurturet, becomes more.
From ordinary Shirt becomes rag becomes robe, layers of time and meaning. Important even if you are the only one to see them.
