Has anyone made a rodeo queen shirt. My neighbor asked me to make one for her. She is 13 and small. She wants it out of swim suit fabric. It needs long sleeves and a collar. She wants no buttons or snaps. It also needs to be a body suit so it will look neatly tucked in.

Well what an interesting project! She wouldn't be happy with a stretch woven instead? You could still make it body suit style for neat tucking in. I had no idea rodeo queens were wearing swimsuit fabrics for their shirts now!
I guess it's something I just wouldn't want to tackle, but I'm sure it can be done with a well behaving fabric.
That said, she'll want some bling on it for sure, right? I wouldn't know how to tackle that part. You probably can't use hot fix items for the bling. It would have to be something you hand sew or embroider on.
Do let us know how you wind up doing this.
Sorry I couldn't be more help!

The Jalie pattern will give you a place to start and has a wide size range included in the one envelope.

For bling you can use an appropriate embellishment glue -- make sure it is specific for fabric and can be washed.

I use swimsuit type fabrics (nylon/spandex blends) all the time for a variety of athletic performance wear but have never done a rodeo queen shirt so no specific advice there.

If the shirt is going to have long sleeves and a collar and done in a western shirt style, you will need some kind of opening -- is there a reason she doesn't want buttons or snaps? I know I've hidden zippers under flaps/plackets to provide an opening that isn't readily visible or else build it into a seam that is a design element.

Suitability has rodeo shirt patterns that call for knit fabrics. You would have to franken the bodysuit part.

Hi Jalie has the bodysuit one with a zipper and Suitability has many styles. She will want a zipper as thats the modern shirt style...the suitability patterns are very straightforward and you can just use a panel with snaps or a piece of velcro at the front bottom edge to make it a body suit for riding...if you check the show me again site you will see horsemanship shirts with the term horsemanship panel which is what they use to keep the shirt tucked in.its just a piece of lycra sewn on the back bottom of the shirt and fastens to the front ..just measure her up as Suitability shirts are form fitting and have fun....lots of lycra fabric can be found on ebay for a reasonable price...have fun!!!

I would suggest that you go to a blog called Everything Sews, written by a lady named Ann who lives in Canada. She has made rodeo clothing for queens for years.

I just cut out an English show shirt for myself and the pattern by Jean hardy has a bodysuit option. It is Endlish, but has a back yoke.
