I deconstructed a 1970’s western shirt and used some fabric from the thrift store I found. I don’t even know where to begin. It was my first time with alot of this, so it took me a long while and lots of ripping. I added pleated round ruffled sleeves, pintucks to top front panel of the shirt, red piping in front and back and along the front placket (which was very hard to do with the snaps there), I relocated the pockets to the side, fitted it with 2 darts in front and 3 darts in back. I made a pattern of each piece I used so I can reuse it again someday. Let me know what you think? any thing I could have done better?
