Cowboy Shirt for My Little Monkey

OK, I'm in for this round! (I've been lurking around for the last two rounds, and am so inspired by everyone's creativity!).

The pattern is from Ottobre (issue Summer 2005), and the fabric is from (the oh-so-fun!) Stitches in Seattle. I might skip the pockets, depending on how much I accomplish (with a 3-year old and a 4 month old baby, I usually manage a seam a day.) This pattern involves lining up my nemisis, buttonholes! Good practise, I figure, and sewing for kids is forgiving because the fit doesn't have to be exact.

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else whips up!
