So the DH is always asking when I'm going to make him something, so I finally whipped him up a western shirt. I used a pattern (western shirts are nothing but confusing) and I messed up a couple of times, but I think all the mistakes are hidden on the inside.
He wanted me to embroider a cow skull (he calls his music Cowpunk) on the back yoke, but my embroidery skills are nonexistent. I might try and screenprint it on there tho. You can barely see a chalk outline of the skull on the back. I really want to add some studs and rhinestones (Conway Twitty or Unknown Hinson style), but he's a little wary of that.
Excuse the plaid pajamas, but it was Sunday. It's a day pjs are made for. Also, sorry the pics are blurry -- they looked fine on the camera. But on a good note, I've finally posted enough that I don't have to link the photos!
Using piping (for the first time) wasn't as complicated as I thought I might be, although I skipped it on the collar.
Cute plaid cowpunk butt! If you look in the right corner, you can see part of an antique Singer sewing machine table (c. 1908) that I made into my desk. Got it at a yard sale for $50.
He's got a show on Wednesday with the Koffin Kats (Detroit psychobilly), so I'll add some action shots if I get some. Oh yeah, if you want to check out the band: www.myspace.com/mcphersonstruts
Any comments, suggestions, etc. are very much appreciated!!!
