After marathoning "True Blood" season 4, I got the itch to make a shirt with pointed western style yokes. The internet was very helpful with giving me some good pics of this style in RTW shirts. Got out the blocks and did a little drawing.....
Instead of using a plaid or tiny floral print like RTW, I decided to pick some cotton with a woven geometric print. I like to be a little bit cowboy, a little bit rock and roll. ;)
I lovvvvve this shirt, the cotton is very densely woven so it crisp and hardly wrinkles. The pointed yokes were a little tricky to sew, but I was able to get a nice shape after a few tries. With the white top-stitching they really pop.
I'm also really pleased with the collar which has nice sharp points thanks to Pam's tutorial.
Pam's Light Crisp Interfacing which turned out it be just perfect for this cotton with a little body to it. (I'm a big fan of all of Pam's interfacing.)
