Grainline Archer (finally!)

I'm pretty sure that I'm one of the last people in the sewing community to make the Grainline Archer shirt.  This will be a short post because I don't think there's anything that hasn't been covered already!

I've developed a habit of not making a muslin and just winging it.  Had I done one, I would have known that I need to lengthen the sleeves and had an inch or so to the bodice length.  It's wearable as it is, but I would like it better if  both the sleeves and the bodice were longer.

I usually stay away from plaid because I don't want to pattern match.  It intimidates me, but I do think I'm getting better at it.  When I took these pictures I realized that the pattern matching between the sleeves and the bodice is better than I thought it was.

The fabric is flannel from Style Maker Fabrics.

Happy sewing!
