A new make: the Archer shirt from independent sewing pattern shop, Grainline Studio using a striped cotton from Mood Fabrics.
I skipped the toile-making stage and went straight into cutting out the pattern pieces from my well-travelled fabric. And the fit turned out pretty perfect. It’s a loose silhouette to begin with but the shoulder seam and sleeves are exactly the right shape and size. The length is pretty good too, hitting me around the hips.
I made special effort to match up the stripes wherever possible, with special attention to the front. The pockets and sleeves are also match in pattern placement.
Snap fasteners were hand sewn to the inside of the button placket, to keep a simple, clean aesthetic. Bar that, all sewing was done by machine, following the thorough instructions fromJennifer. Well worth the money paid for this well designed, independent pattern.
I foresee multiple copies, but in gingham and silk.
