The Artful Archer

This grainline pattern is definitely artful- how it quickly becomes one of those patterns you consider making with all new fabric.
I'm quite happy with how it came out- Its extra comfy as the fabric is so drapey (gotta love that rayon) and I made the pattern on the larger size.  The sewalong on Grainlines blog is also extra helpful for the collar and back yoke construction if you haven't made them before (like me!). 
I have already worn this shirt so much-  I think for the next one though I would make the sleeves 3/4 or add tabs to keep them folded up as I don't wear the sleeves full length! 
I'm loving the sleeveless designs people have been sewing up, next project perhaps!


  1. Love this version of the archer pattern :)

    1. Thanks! I really love the back detailing- makes it so much more interesting than just a shirt!
