    Western Show Wear - anyone have experience?

    Yesterday my niece contacted me to help her sew some shirts/jackets for showing her 8mo old horse come spring. I have no info on the rules of these things and some of the fabric challenges I see have me a bit hesitant. I would love to find a mentor, just someone who says, you can't do that or it's ok to do this. Someone with some experience in beading on lycra, mounting stones and jewels on whatever, lycra, light weight leather etc. Apparently the more the glitz the better. I love doing costumes, but this is a whole new world for me. I'm full of ideas! Woke up this morning thinking about the feeling you get when you see Julie Andrews in the Sound Of Music. Happy Day to all.

    I have cousin who sews for miss America, miss rodeo America, etc. She says just Google search what you are sewing on and lots will come up. Patience and lots of hand work. I'll ask her for her info and if she wants it given out. Will get back to you.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Thanks, I'm also going to check into the costumers group and also check into maybe volunteering with our local college play wardrobe. I'm a very experienced seamstress, but not with things like beaded jackets, leather and jewels mounted on velcro etc. Once I manage to gather those skills - all will be well. Ordered a multi-sized pattern today. This is going to be so much fun.
