Well, I'm pretty much lovin' my first Grainline Studios Archer Shirt. I'm not really a button-up shirt wearing sort of girl but this one has my vote. And while the jury is still out on this decision, I may even sew along with the 12 Months of Grainline Studio Archer Shirts that the beautiful and talented JStarr4250 has started.
Heck, it's 100% cotton. I may even enter it in the Natural Fibers contest on Pattern Review. Who wouldn't love a chance to win $100 from Schmetz!

This is a downloadable pattern so you get instant gratification when you plunk down your money. I was reminded what a joy it is to sew on cotton. I was also reminded I need to brush up my topstitching skills! Love my new shirt. Download this pattern and join in on the fun!

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day and God bless America and the folks in Oklahoma.
