Another Archer and #SewingCommunityGives

Another day, another Archer. I’ve now made Grainline’s Archer shirt more than any other pattern. What can I say, I love this pattern! A classic button-down shirt with an easy fit and no darts? Sign me up! This pink and blue cotton is from The Cloth Pocket (where these photos were taken and where I’m teaching some classes this month) and these perfect pink buttons are from a defunct local store. For this Archer, I…

Starry Night Grainline Archer

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….

Hiking Archer – More Activewear Sewing

Did you know this year is the 100th birthday of the National Park Service? I love National Parks! Creating them is one of the best things this country has ever done. Whenever I get disillusioned by the mess of our current political system and I start thinking “you know, that Justin Trudeaux guy seems like an alright dude,” and “Vancouver is really just like a much colder Austin,” I remember the National Parks and think, “well, at least…

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…

Sleeveless Popover Archer

Taking a little break today from costume sewing (both historical and some cosplay) to share a quick shirt I made. Yet another variation on the Grainline Archer. The Goal: I bought a yard of this fabric with the idea that I would use it for a different project but I never ended up making that other project. Instead I was left with only a small amount of fabric. What could I make…? The Pattern: Ah,…

Grainline Archer #3 – Popover Edition!

Susan was nice enough to take pictures of this shirt yesterday on a little blogger meet-up/shopping trip.

Grainline Archer #2

(I got photobombed by my nephew, lol) The Goal: I wanted to make, in my head, a safari style white buttondown. Something less dressy and more utilitarian than your standard white shirt. I had the fabric and pattern for awhile but I had yet to actually sew it. The Pattern: Another Grainline Archer! After my first one, I immediately dived into my second version. Love this pattern. I did a straight size 4 (this shirt…

The best looking Pic-nic Blanket you’ve ever seen, aka, my Grainline Archer Shirt

We took these pictures at the new Whole Foods near my house here in Austin. We went on the big Grand Opening Day event because, well, we’re white and we had this coupon for a free package of ground beef if you spent over $25. So we bought some grapes and a baguette which was enough to get that meat. there’s a side seam in there somewhere… 😉 Anyway, after that I made Justin take…
