This is the inside of my shirt showing off the flat-felled seams and overall tidiness

I made this shirt for my husband to showcase his sense of style. My husband adores vintage cowboy shirts from the 70's and bright saturated colors. That can be a bit of a conflict, but I think I married the two in a stylish way. I found a vintage western shirt pattern from the 70's and made a few changes to make it modern and fresh. I decreased the over-sized 70's collar, and also drafted short sleeves (his preference). I used a dark chambray for the main fabric and used a fun rainbow plaid for the under-collar, collar stand, and the inside of the pocket flap. I used vintage snaps to complete the western shirt "look". I wanted this shirt to wink at brighter colors, while still being masculine. I took care to hide all the raw seams and painstakingly flat-felled this shirt (I do NOT have a flat felling foot). I think the extra care shows and he gets lots of compliments everytime he wears this out
