I ahve pretty limited experience sewing clothing, but I really wanted to try this.
My daughter is getting into showing horses. The shirts that are out there for showmanship are CRAZY expensive - we're talking hundreds of dollars!
So, I bought a women's poly/lycra dress shirt fro $6, used some of my batik from stash, spent thousands of hours to get the collar on, and Viola! - a little show shirt. It's a sz 6 - not going to fit her, but just for practice. I'll add some bling to it with hot affix crystals (thanks to QuiltingWifey for borrowing me her Kandi Kane).
The shirt can be worn outside the pants, or tucked in. they are supossed to be tight-fitting.
I can just picture this with black chaps and boots - oh, too cute.This message has been edited. Last edited by: RockinBobbin,
My mom wears these kinds of shirts any time she rides. She'll look for them at thrift stores. When I join her on a ride, she dresses me up too. LOL!
I like yours. It's quite modern.
You did a good job!
Two of my DBs were into horses as kids/teens. Older one wore what he wore everyday. Youngest DB was into competition in a big way. Went all over the state of Texas and some venues out of state. DM spent a fortune on his clothes. She even bought a rug hooking thing-ma-doodle and did his initials in the saddle pad.
I rode horses...just for pleasure though not competition. I made 1st DHs and my western shirts...but no bling or eyepopping colors. Also made DSs shirts when he was a kid and in his Garth Brooks stage. He was fun to sew for...more adventurous than his DD who did not want the yokes a different pattern/color from the body of the shirt.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Nice work. Have fun adding the bling.
If you want/need, remember the offer of patterns that I might have is still on the table. Even if it is only to use the directions for the how to of different features.
Another way to add bling is with fabric glue and glitter or glitter paints.
Another trick using the glitter paints...put a tiny drop of the paint down and put a sequin into it making the paint come through the hole in the sequin.
Used these tricks many times when making costumes that needed to razzle dazzle.This message has been edited. Last edited by: paus4quilts,
Nice work "RB"! Horses are a favorite of mine. Haven't riden for years tho. DH sez he won't feed something he can't ride all the time, hence the Harley, LOL...truly. Have a great time playing with western wear. Joyce
Very pretty. Wish I could sew clothes but hated it in high school.
