My husband has a huge pile of clothes that don't fit anymore or wouldn't fit in his closet (the boy's got a lot of clothes). I get to use all of these goodies to chop and "weld". I really love all of his western shirts, but they aren't really made for curvy gals.  I found this awesome shirt that took parts of a rockin western shirt and stuck it on a comfy tee. I used this as inspiration to combine some of his leftovers http://www.venuszine.com/articles/diy/3689/Urban_cowgirl_Turn__a_boring_button_down_into_country_chic. I sort of wanted a larger yoke than I allowed myself but my scissors got out of control and I had to trim some disaster spots. I adore the lace going around the yoke but I should have used some that was just a tad larger. Maybe next time huh! I also put cute little cuffs on the bottom instead of the lame tight bands on the tee.

I'm so huge into these right now, I'm gonna make a bajillion more.
