James Country's Guerrilla shirt pattern I do believe runs around $12, but after speaking to my wife, she said she'd be happy to mail you one of hers, just give us your address. The differnce being is that hers is not as detailed as the one available at James Country, but that a seamstress could decipher it, they're not too complicated of a garment. As far as material, most anything works, as long as you keep in mind that most were considered hunting frocks, worn as an overshirt to protect one's self while in the woods, etc. Decorations run the gamut, from ribbons, velvet, rosettes, buttons, etc. Some further research will help with this.
