I came across a piece of super soft doe skin Ultra-Suede at my local indie fabric store, and just knew that this was what I had to use for the latest shirt my husband wanted. The yoke was cut on the bias from a textured polyester plaid. The wide cuff (hidden is these pictures because the sleeves are rolled up) completes the retro western style look. I used McCall’s pattern 4350 (oop).
Normally I would use a rolled hem technique on a mans shirt, but for this fabric I used an overcast stitch along the bottom edge, then turned the hem up one turn, and top stitched.
