What an idea on the bottle caps. I just made a beer theme shirt from my brother (no buttons) and have another one planned (with buttons). I might see if I can do this (although I don't have any button shanks!).

This is a great shirt pattern for men. It lends itself well to interesting prints like the one you chose. Love the button idea!

Thanks, Karla. I do believe it is rayon. I also have a coffee print fabric and am thinking how to incorporate coffee beans for those buttons!

Glady's, you've made a shirt that speaks the language of the men in my life. I love it. Bottle caps for buttons - how clever. Is the fabric cotton or rayon? It looks nice and drapey.
