     Phil, you can do like Eddie said, or go to Dixie gunworks, on line, or order their catalog, and they have patterns, of all sorts, in the back, from the 1700's up.  They have Indian style clothing patterns also.  From shirts, pants, to skirts, and dresses.  You know the nice white pants that George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson wore?  They were buck skins!  The tanned skin of a deer was worth a dollar.  Hence a dollar being a buck.  The Europeans loved them.

i used to go fishing all the time out that way. kettle creek, sunken branch, west branch, lebo run. all very good trout streams back in the day.

On a side note, and it might be kinda early to bring this up, but are you gonna be at the ETAR at Denton Hill this year? my buddy and i are going to be camping there from thursday morning to saturday night.

That would be cool if you can make it. if i get my shirt done before then, im probably gonna wear it at least one day.

well there were only 5 skins, but theyre big enough that i think i can get a good shirt out of em... the bigest one is 4 feet long, just so you have a size reference.

well i wont hijack this thread anymore, so here are the pics.
