Copy my dress shirts - Is there a tailor who can make exact replica's of my best fitting button down dress shirt?

I have difficulty finding clothes that fit me. I finally found a shirt that fits me perfectly, and the company that made it no longer makes this style (J. Crew from business formal/casual dress shirts collection fall of 2008).
Can I send the shirt to a tailor, have them unsew the shirt at the seams, trace the material/pieces of the shirt onto new material and re-sew into multiple copies of the same shirt (I'd like a dozen if that matters!)
This seems simple in theory - copying a shirt - but I'm not sure where to look, what tailor/business to call, if there's a name for this process, how much it would cost, or if I could do this myself!
Please only respond if you can speak directly to this request! I've priced custom tailored shirts before and they were a little too expensive. I'd like to use this process to subsize the cost if possible.
Thanks in advance!
