Wow, what a fantastic shirt! I love the custom-designed yoke and your fitting looks perfect. I agree with Nancy Rhodes, you may regret making such a gorgeous shirt-the whole band will be lining up for them, lol! Thanks for all the pics-I love that vintage pattern, what a great inspiration!

Very cool. I love Western shirts and this one looks great.

Your husband is a lucky man. That shirt is a labor of love!

Fabulous! Should be no shock he wants another... pretty soon you will be the official band tailor... wonderful scroll design on the yoke too.

The western shirt is wonderful. That's a great idea to use the yokes and cuff from the vintage pattern. You better hide as there are probably lots of these in your future.

Nice looking shirt and nice hand embroidery work. Be careful, your DH's bandmates may put in requests for shirts ;-)

I love your embroidery - it is fantastic and the design is so clever! Great shirt!

Oh that's awesome! Fancy yokes like that always looked like they would be out of my reach, but using an overlay on a well-fitted shirt is a great idea! Your husband looks smashing in it!

What an incredible shirt - perfect for playing bass in a western swing band (I'd love to hear them!). It really looks great on your husband. Nice job!

Very, very nice shirt, full of personality! Love the red and the gray fabrics paired together; beautiful embroidery as well. Great job!
