Western Style Shirt

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.

      Thanks, David. Sometimes I find a piece of great fabric, and just wait for it to tell me what to do with it. In this case, I knew what I wanted to make, but had to wait for the fabric to find me.
