This was originally supposed to be a birthday present for the boyfriend, which was Nov 2. That didn't happen, so then it ended up being a Christmas present, even though the embroidery wasn't totally finished... Well I finally finished it, and I am SO proud of it! It fits him perfectly, and he thinks it's pretty awesome.

I used an old (girls') pattern, but used the measurements from an existing cowboy shirt that fits him really well. This was definitely the biggest undertaking I've ever done, and my first experience with piping and with collars, which I had some difficulty with because I measured the front pieces wrong... Oh well, on with the pictures!

Aww, sweet! that is a kick-ass shirt. I especially love the contrasting damask fabric, and the embroidery on the back is excellent.

This is so awesome Clay Pants! Hee, I'm going to jack this idea for my sister. She's the one that stole all our dads cowboy shirts from the 70's, and you totally inspired me to try to make some for her.
Man, I hope my first attempts at collars and piping come out half as well as yours. Because yours rocks my socks.

I hope that I can figure this computer stuff all out enough to make this work.
