      Over the years I’ve mentioned sewing my own clothes in many articles. The “How-to” section has some articles on sewing, and I hope to add more in the future.

      There are posts scattered throughout this site like January 25, 2015, which tells of dyeing a linen shirt. August 29, 2014 talks about sewing the silk ribbon on the breechclout, and September 19, 2013 presents the documentation that I used for selecting a ready-made ruffled shirt from a trader. And that doesn’t address the hundreds of magazine articles, so I need some help narrowing down which article you are looking for.

      Did you see the article on this site or perhaps in Woods-N-Water News, Muzzle Blasts or MUZZLELOADER Magazine? Can you be a little more specific, please, and I’ll try to find it?
