New Vintage Western Shirt

I have a thang for sewing western shirts. They're not the easiest thing to whip up nor are they a quick fix for a sewing itch. But I always feel so pleased when a western shirt is finished. I'm about half way through this one and am a little bit in love with the lovely brown fabric I've chosen.

I've chosen bronze press studs this time to go for a slightly more subtle approach, instead of the more traditional pearl press studs. Have you ever used these studs? Do you take the hammer and bash kind of approach or do you use a gadget to get press studs on?

I bash with a hammer....and have cracked a few in the process.

I am addicted to pearl snaps. I got dyes for my snap press specially for them and a few other assorted types of snaps. I'm not afraid to bash something with a hammer if I need to either, though
