Thanks everybody!
And I agree with tinyliny on the 1-2 grand show shirts. I wouldn't even spend that much on a SADDLE, let alone a shirt for myself!
I'm going to compete in a state 4H show, and I'm looking for a show shirt (for other 4H shows it's required to only wear a white western shirt and jeans, no fanciness)...
Do people make their own show shirts? Reason being; my aunt sews a lot & really well, maybe I could have her make me a custom show shirt! One that looks like it costed $1000! :P

I've tried that, but I don't have the skill for all the embellishments. You can always buy the printed material and add more glitter and glam after. I like my shirts to be either bre made of cotton or satin, but I LOVE embroidery, lol!! When I buy a shirt with the embroidery, I use my Bedazzler and start adding the rhinestones. Looks pretty sharp. I've looked into buying a embroidering machine, but WOW, they are not cheap.

I would LOVE to have a bedazzler, but my mom insists that I shouldn't have one or my entire wardrobe would be rhinestones.

That 5,000 shirt just blinded me. Wow, I think I'd get dizzy looking at all that sparkle

I sew my daughter's show shirts using patterns from SuitAbility.com. I then bedazzle them and add cuffs and a collar from Hobby Horse (switch its) because getting the collar even is beyond my ability. :)

Tiny- majority of the high end clothing are handmade in the us :) I can't speak for all, but I don't know any that are not! However, if you go to rods.com you will find most everything is imported.

To the OP- Suitability as mentioned above, or check out the hobby horse Janie line. They come plain and seams unsewn, for you to decorate and finish. If you like the style, square neck vests are really big (I think they're really cute, but I only show showmanship and HUS so no use for me). You may be able to do a couple for the price a jacket would cost since you know someone that sews.

I like to have outfits custom made and then add the crystals myself to save money.

Most 5,000 outfits are made by professionals here. Like Berry Fit, she hires people with sewing skills and they each work on an outfit.
When most people have a 5,000 outfit, they have a matching 50,000 horse to go with it, and most likely that horse wouldn't do something like that.
