My love for Grainline Studios is no secret and I have every single pattern by Jen Beeman in my “to sew” queue (sadly, I tried to make the Tiny Pocket Tank lately and didn’t pick a good fabric for it…lesson learned for next time). So when I saw her newly released pattern last night, The Archer Button-Up, it shot waaaay up to the top of my sewing list.
Dig that back ruffle, isn’t it divine? This could have been just another button-up shirt but the ruffle takes it beyond that and makes it a much more fun addition to your wardrobe than just another closet staple. Plus, it makes a masculine shirt much more girly, yay for that.
I’d love to make it in a purple or pink plaid (if my plaid-matching skills were up to par, that is) or a Liberty of London cotton lawn. Yikes, sewing queue, you seem to be growing every day with all of the indie patterns I want to sew…this is truly the Year of the Indie Sewing Pattern for me.
Do you love the new pattern? What kind of fabric would you use?
