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!|
