Starry Night Grainline Archer

Star Archer Shirt
I want winter to arrive. A couple weeks ago we got a cold front and the temperature dipped down slightly. Any time the high is below 80 degrees here in Texas it’s BOOT WEATHER! But then the temps rose back above 90 and I felt saddened once more…

But that hint of fall gave me hope for the coming season. Until those few glorious, fleeting days, I hadn’t seen a pair of jeans in six months. Those jeans and boots came out from the lost corners of the closet along with my beloved long-sleeved button down shirts.

If my motto is “When in Doubt, Make a Scout,” then the Archer is quickly becoming my new Scout. I already have two more Archers cut out and in the process of assembly. I’m going full force on making Archer the centerpiece of my winter wardrobe. Maybe by sewing more long sleeve shirts I can force winter to come by sheer will! What? You mean that won’t actually work? Well, you can pry my ankle booties off my cold dead feet!

Until then, here’s a new Archer!

Star Archer Shirt
This fabric is a lovely cotton with metallic silver stars and moons from The Cloth Pocket. The moons were few and far between so I had to make the most of my fabric to get any moons on the shirt. I made sure to include one on the pocket.

The buttons are shiny, faceted plastic from Joann. The only changes made – the pockets are about 1″ shorter, which is how I usually make them.

This shirt adds to my collection of several other Archer variations. And it’s the perfect shirt to wear to Astronomy on Tap!

    Love it! Your fabric is super awesome. Here’s hoping that TX receives some cooler temps!

  • LOVE it! I actually like that you pretty much only have the moon on the pocket… like it is actually a night sky. Also booties below 80 degrees?! LOL I’d still be in sandals here.

  • Ha, when in doubt make a scout! I love it! Lovely new archer as well 🙂 Best wishes for a speedy winter!

  • I love your fabric for this Archer! I laughed reading how it’s become your new Scout! I love Scout so much and I just finished Grainline’s Morris and have to say for a jacket it’s incomparable! I love my new Morris (I did it in a cozy fleece) so much I’m onto making another in wool!
