I made this shirt for my husband to match our 1970 Cadillac Hearse. I chose gray and black to match the interior of the car. The S&S logo was embroidered by hand. This was my first time embroidering on a piece of clothing and there are few things that I would do differently next time. The pattern I used is Kwik Sew 3484.

Here is a pic of the the logo that I used for reference. For those that are interested S&S is the coach maker.



My husband loves the shirt and it was a big hit at the Hearse Club meeting!

Thanks for looking  Smiley

I can't believe I am the first person tasteless enough to say this: Your husband is a hottie!
His shirt fits him remarkably well too, looks very professionally tailored.
Nice job!

Ugly. Is irrelevant. It is an immeasurable insult to a woman, and then supposedly the worst crime you can commit as a woman. But ugly, as beautiful, is an illusion. - Margaret Cho

Nice embroidery! I have to say, your husband looks kind of like Alan Cumming, if Alan Cumming was a hearse-driving rock star.
