Obviously the Roommate's Western Xmas Shirt is finished! Here is the supermodel showing it off.
Apparently I'm even luckier than I previously thought, because at least 2 friends have told me their significant others would never wear anything like that. The Roommate is an elementary school teacher and the children love him, partly because he does not mind looking silly...so even if the crazy shirts I make for him are not sophisticated or classy, he wears them anyway, with pleasure.
You can see that I had fun w/ the contrasting red & green. The red is under the collar, and inside the neckline & the button placket, so it just shows a bit.
I also included some red inside the pockets & red star buttons--because the Roommate is also a communist! ;-) For those detail pictures, click here.
The pattern is Simplicity 6693, from 1974, BTW.
