  1. Your work is lovely! I would enjoy seeing a tutorial on how to make long western shaped cuffs. I am making a shirt for a western style wedding.

    • Thank you Judy!
      Do you have a pattern for your shirt? My suggestion would be to look for a vintage pattern with the type of cuff you need – often they appear on 1940s and 1950s patterns – I think maybe people were more ambitious in those days! That’s how I have learned some of these skills – just by following pattern instructions, then practising a lot! A lot of 70s patterns have a pointed cuff that is a lot easier than the traditional ‘shotgun’ cuff and looks impressive. Vogue 8973 is a favourite of mine and it also has a smile pocket.
      There are loads of vintage patterns on etsy, or try

      Penny, who runs this site always has lots of Jean Hardy patterns.
      Good luck! Enjoy the wedding!
