Who puts your Custom Rio Grande Vest together?
  Don Livingston's LONGHORN HATTERS is proud to announce the association of Terry Heffner, Master Seamstress, to help in the design of the new COWBOY FIXIN'S OLD TIME RIO GRANDE LAPELED COWBOY VESTS to be featured on the LONGHORN HATTERS Web Site, and on property store sales.

Mrs Heffner has sewed for people for over 30 years starting in middle school, and eventually added Custom Civil War and Old West clothing items about 20 years ago to her skills. She says, “Now that there are fabrics out there from the Smithsonian, customers can almost be taken back to the Old West with the designs.

Mrs Heffner sews from period correct patterns, sewing the clothes as closely to the original designs as possible. She says, “If a customer calls for something different from the patterns I am working with, it can be worked out, but working within the original patterns is the correct way, and is what I do. For example, Long sleeves on ladies blouses were standard during the Civil War, and Old West Periods, unless they would want short sleeves.”

She goes on to say, “I Started with the Civil War things, and still sew for a few people that play with that period. Re enactors take what they do very seriously, so the clothing HAS to be right. From there, I eventually got involved with more Old West Clothing because of the vast amount of design capabilities.”

She also studies shows like the former HBO series, “Deadwood“, as well as others, such as “Tombstone”, and has, through years of experience, developed the ability to watch, and create designs from the clothing off the shows. “Men and women like that because after seeing it on T.V., or film, they have a perfect reproduction.”

“The best thing about the whole idea of “THE OLD WEST”, or other period clothing designs, are the people I meet. They are all a lot of fun, and have enjoyed my creations for many years.”

Mrs Heffner works with the hard to fit guy or gal. She says, “I can help them out…..,some times it takes a couple of try's, but it will happen.”

The above is called heart, and a love for what one does, so if it’s a planned Vest, or one that matches a movie star, this talented Wardrobe Designer can build it.

When one consigns LONGHORN HATTERS for one of the six featured Custom Vests, it should be noted that there is a limited amount of “each piece”, so duplication is kept to a bear minimum.

In addition to the Custom Vests, other Old West Period Clothing such as shirts, blouses, dresses, pants, and coats could also be offered in the future.

NOW......, how 'bout an OLD TIME CUSTOM RIO GRANDE COWBOY LAPELED VEST???
