My Archer of Many Details is complete, and I have to say, I really like this one! Not surprisingly, it’s the little details that make all the difference. They take extra time, but to me, it’s worth it. 🙂
Although I finished sewing this shirt about 2 weeks ago, I’m only getting around to blogging about it now. Life has a way of getting busy sometimes, and sewing is usually the first thing to go when my schedule fills up. Sad but true! My sewing had been moving along at a glacial pace anyway, mostly due to me being exhausted after work lately, so I guess the last few weeks of low sewing productivity aren’t all that surprising. Ah, life. Anyway, back to my new shirt!
The latest project on my sewing table is my third Archer, which I’ve affectionately dubbed “The Archer of Many Details.” I’ve been meaning to try out a bunch of new-to-me shirt-making techniques, and I figured I’d give them all a go in a single project. Two birds and one stone, you know how it goes. 🙂
The main fabric is Robert Kaufmann pinpoint Oxford, a chambray with a crisp hand that presses like a dream. It’s the same fabric I used for my first Archer, which I love (and actually wore today!). It makes a really crisp, professional-looking shirt, which is exactly the vibe I’m going for. I saw it at Grey’s Fabric and immediately scooped it up in a whirlwind of spontaneity. I’m sure you can relate, ha.
Ok, onward to the “many details.”
