Sew Chaotically! ~ Archer, by Grainline Studio, as Shirt Jac!

Grainline Studio has been a consistent go-to pattern company for me.  Their Alder Shirt Dress, Morris Blazer, Linden Sweatshirt, and Archer Button Up  have become tried and true patterns!!!  They go together perfectly.  A straight 8, with no alterations can be counted on to fit my shape.  So when B was talking me into purchasing this thick cotton woven flannel-ish herringbone, I knew just what to do with it!

An Archer as Shirt Jac!!!

The bum ruffle adds extra interest and fun!  I was a little worried if it would be manageable given the thickness of this fabric, but it worked out just fine!!
And since winter has decided to make a return in these parts, the timing of completion is perfect!

Still, the warm snap we experienced has already inspired my NEXT Archer!!!  It is cut and ready to go in a very light weight cotton voile acquired in Paris at Frou Frou!!  I've cut the 8 and may curve it in at the side seams just a bit!  But, it will have to wait a minute!  After all these button ups, I'm taking an easy knit break!
Cold rainy winter days are perfect for a cutting palooza!!!  Sew excited!
Thanks, @grainlinestudio for so many wonderfully wearable, fun makes!  Sew chaotically! - les

  2. Thanks. It was was easier than making the button downs for the boys because it was SMALLER!!!!
