Lavender Grainline Archer

For this photoshoot, I went to the Hope Outdoor Gallery which is a fancy name for a city park where they let people graffiti over the concrete walls of this abandoned unfinished building.

It’s cool to see all the different art and writing but you never know what you’re going to find on the walls so apologies in advance if there turns out to be something offensive in these pics.

Getting that out of the way, let’s move on to the sewing!

It’s no secret that I love the Grainline Archer shirt. I’ve made variations of it four times. It has certainly earned its TNT status.

This time around, I made the version with the gathered back. The only change I made was to make the pockets a little smaller.

The fabric is a Kokka cotton shirting from The Cloth Pocket. The fabric is so smooth and fine, I plan on stocking up on lots of colors. It’s pretty wrinkly in these photos, though, because I had been wearing it all day.

I used some metal buttons from Joann Fabrics.

Lavender ArcherI only have one problem with this shirt: while making it I accidentally dropped a cupcake on the back hem of the shirt. The frosting made a splotchy stain that hasn’t come out even with a wash in the machine and soaking in hot water. It’s homemade frosting so I’m guessing it’s butter and sugar. It’s not too noticeable but I’m still annoyed by it.

Anyone got an idea to get the stain out??
