Castro Valley, U...
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.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
