Thats right. The American Flag Western Shirt. Complete with red and white stripe material, blue yoke with white star patches. And you can't forget the red, white and blue piping. I almost bought these super cool buttons with little illustrations of the flag but that was just getting too extreme.

I used my go to men's western shirt pattern Kwik Sew 3506, the short sleeve version, with no pockets. I have been to Jo-Anns maybe 4 different times now for more and more white stars. Everytime I thought I had enough but I guess I rearranged them differently. But the end result I am definitely proud of. I know it is not hemmed yet but after doing all the other work I think my eyes will bug out of my skull if I look at the red and white stripe anymore.

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

This is the most fantastic thing I've ever seen. How did you modify the yolk? I'm new to pattern modifications.
