Gingham Archer Shirt

Yes, I am hooked on this pattern but the way I see it..... if it is a good thing don't mess with it.

Heading out with hubby, a trip to Lowe's and a movie (The Other Woman).  Pretty funny, I might add.





This time in a crisp aqua and white check from Mood Fabrics

Changes- omitted the front pockets and I did not cut anything on the bias.  It does look a bit different without the front pockets but still a fabulous shirt.

Another shot on my front porch, of course


This was my outfit for Me Made May, on May 3rd.

If you are new to the blog, here is all my previously made the Archers and Archer  related posts


Now a quick recap of my trip to Lynne's last weekend.  We had so much fun, antiquing, hitting up flea markets.  She showed me how to use Annie Sloan's chalkpaints and waxes.  We talked and talked and just had the best time.

  1. Lori, so lovely. I have not yet made a button down shirt. I have a huge fear of buttons and collars. LOL. Not sure why.

  4. I understand why you've made this shirt several times because each one fits so well and they are all beautiful!
