Here is a reconstructed vintage Western shirt.  It was much too large when I purchased it but those embroidered wagon wheels and cacti were irresistible!  I am also a sucker for pearly snaps!

On this shirt I tailored the sides, created new sleeves from a cream fabric with matching rose polka-dots and fashioned new sleeve bands from the scraps.  It is a bit of a mish mash but I like it. Now if I can just find some matching cowgirl boots 

I apologize, in advance, for the silly poses and yucky faces. 
I am really not as narcissistic as the pictures would imply.   Wink

Yep, every month a (slightly) different shade of hair is my philosophy.   Wink
