    Ok... here goes, for years my husband has asked me to make him a cowboy shirt. His bithday is Aug. 5th. I have all the stuff now to make the shirt. (I have had it for weeks actually) I am just not confident in putting on snaps and doing all the top stitching, to say nothing of having it fit him when I am finished! It is not that I can't do it, I know I can do it.

    Off I go, to cut it out! He made it easy for me even, he picked a light blue Chambray, no plaids to match up, no piping or fancy stuff. For the next three days I am sewing!!

    Take your time, go slow when top-stitching. Practice the snap installation on fabric scraps. I have sewn for 30 + years and for years made Show Clothing for people that showed horses. Also press all your seams open so that everything looks professional. You can do it, just do not get in a hurry.
