boys like cowboy shirts

Portland, Oregon...






David needs shirts like you wouldn’t believe. He really likes this one. I used a vintage pattern pretty much right out of the envelope, and the only real change was that I added straight cuffs and a real sleeve vent. The pattern said to make the vent out of the sleeve seam, but I think this is better.

    I really need to try making a shirt for my hubby.

    I have made a number of shirt blouses for myself but nothing for him. Will have to stop being so self-fish and who knows it may look as good on him as it does on your model guy above. Lets hope so

    Thank you all so much! It’s lovely to hear from you. My fella said ‘you can make me a shirt any time you want…really… I don’t mind at all…I mean, I really need more shirts."

    Nice. Those changes you made really add to the design. Great fabric, too.

    great work! I agree with the cuffins and the vent, this way is much better!
