|Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Grainline Studio - Archer Shirt|
Each month when my post goes live on the Blogger Network, I'll be posting a little preview here with my usual sewing summary and an image or two, but all the images and my full pattern review will be in my full Minerva post! Got it? Right....
|My land-girl inspired Archer shirt!|
For my November, and first, Minerva make I chose the Archer Shirt by Grainline Studio, a pattern I've been eyeing up for quite some time. I wanted to create a vintage inspired land-girl shirt in a classic plaid fabric.
Sewing time: I spent the best part of a day on this, with plenty of tea breaks and time to make sure my top-stitching was neat and pressing throughout for a crisp finish.
Fit: Okay. Too big on the sleeves for sure, but I could definitely size down at least one size and down two sizes for a fitted shirt.
Difficulty: Nice and simple. A great project for adventurous beginners to learn lots of new skills.
Watch out for: Tidy top-stitching, pattern matching if applicable and getting the collar nice and neat.
Make Again?: Yes! I'm sure this will become a wardrobe staple for me. Plus Minerva Crafts have so many gorgeous colours in this plaid fabric, it's hard to resist making another version!
