The Yee-Haw Rodeo Shirt

The Christmas season is upon us and I was inspired to make this shirt for my husband (especially since I never got around to making one for his birthday).

He’s always loved western shirts and I was pretty stoked when I found this legit pattern from 1978 at a yard sale. It’s McCall’s 6383. The pattern, magically, is his same size. YAY ME! I made a men’s size 40 with a 15 1/2″ neck. I used some soft orange plaid cotton flannel from Joann’s, white piping, and pearl snaps. The yoke, front bands and cuff are cut on the bias to add visual interest. I had a lot of “first”s with this shirt. First sleeve placket and cuff, first flat-felled seams, and first pearl snaps. More photos and info can be found on my blog.  http://dapperduds.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/the-yee-haw-rodeo-shirt/
