I need to sew a western shirt for a little boy for a western style wedding. I would like to change the cuffs from straight to the long shaped style that you see on retro styled shirts. I can't find instructions anywhere about how to draft and sew such cuffs. I would also like to do the "smile" pockets that you see on retro shirts in old western movies, but I can't find instructions for those. Any ideas?

Check the Costume section of the pattern books, they have cowboy outfits.
Google "free boys western shirt tutorials" and you'll get various Mom Blogs with freebies. Allfreesewing.com has a cute free "wild west vest" pattern that would be great over a shirt.

I'm not sure if Suitability will have a little boys pattern, you would probably have better luck finding a costume pattern. I have made the retro shirts, I didn't have a pattern so I just used a regular shirt pattern. The smile pockets are piped welt pockets. You just do them in a curved shape. You could hand sew the arrowhead tacks (just google for a tutorial) or do them with an embroidery machine if you have one. For the cuffs, I made a longer cuff with a curved shape and added piping to it. (You can probably find a pic online to get an idea for the shape).I sewed the cuff to the bottom of the sleeve by machine, flipped it up into place and hand stitched in the well of the piping. Sorry, this probably isn't much help, I hope you can find a pattern!

Hi,

Perhaps this site will have the pattern(s) that you need.

Some of the men's shirts also contain patterns for boys.

Are you talking about cuffs like those in View 1 here?

If so, you can google terms like 'vintage western style shirt patterns.' However, my uncle and his sons were the real deal, he being a ranch foreman in Nevada during the 1940s-1950s, and he and his sons were figures on the local rodeo circuit. They never wore Hollywood western shirts like those in this pattern--perhaps might have wanted to, except that that they seldom saw movies and were too busy working.

In any case, you can look for Hollywood patterns like this on ebay and etsy.

I love those retro western shirts and am old enough to have had one of my very own.

My son is a real sure 'nough cowboy in Wyoming, though, and prefers collarless shirts with fuller sleeves and plenty of room in the body for ease of movement. I buy him these

when they go on sale and wish I could find a pattern.

Hmm. Sorry. Thread hijack.

Thank you everyone for the great suggestions! This shirt is for the ring bearer of the wedding. The wedding colors will be black and teal, so the shirt will have a black body with a teal yoke and cuffs. I plan to use the gripper snaps and teal piping with some black embroidery on the yoke. I play to order a pattern from the company suggested by one poster just for the sleeve cuff directions. I will need to practice my welt/smile pockets before trying it on the garment.

I forget how old your boy is, but this or something like it is just what you need. This particular pattern has been sold, but a search on ebay or etsy should turn something up.

One name for this cuff style, BTW, is 'shotgun' cuffs.
