Me and May Archer

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 pattern is drafted beautifully and came together like clockwork. The fun part was picking the fabrics. Here are a few close ups:
Inside yoke:
Collar band:

And a view of the back:
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!
See my complete review of this on
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day and God bless America and the folks in Oklahoma.


  1. What a nice looking shirt. I love the print. Cotton is so wonderful to sew on!

  2. nice looking shirt and funky fabric too - like the combination.

  3. Love your fun fabric choices! Just finished my muslin, too, and really do like this pattern. Can't wait to make it again -- for real!

  4. You say you aren't a button up kind of girl, but I have to disagree. This looks wonderful on you and is a perfect complement to your gorgeous coloring. I have seen some nice Archer shirts and this one is added to that list. I'm tempted but I promised myself to stick to my spring sewing plan (which includes many things from last year)!

  5. Nice shirt from what I keep hearing is a top pattern. Feeling sorely tempted to go buy it.
