I promise it will be the last one for a while, I am a bit tired of sewing blouses and ready to move onto other garments.
I used this Mood Fabrics' white/aqua paisley stretch cotton which is a great price at $5.99/yard
The cotton has the perfect amount of stretch and a nice hand. You might have noticed flowers, but these are so small that you don't notice them unless you are right next to me.
I am not sure what number of Archer this is but I still love each and everyone of them. This one I did taper in the side seams a bit, making more of a waistline. I thought with the nice stretch of this fabric, it would be a good change.
I also decided to make more notes on my instruction sheet. For instance, the distance from the collar band to the buttonhole at the bust line.
Also, the distance between buttonholes, I went closer together on this one. I have been wearing more of these big necklaces and wanted the button placement to help show off these necklaces.
One last note, was the sleeve cuff and which side the placket folds in. I don't know why but I always have to look at a completed shirt for this.
At first on my photos, I just wasn't brave to go outside in the 20 degree weather, so I took some inside. I do have a new gadget in my hand, a remote control for the camera. Why have I not bought this before? It was $8 and makes picture taking so much easier and the pictures so much clearer.
Since it was a cold day and I was running late to work, pictures take time, right? I just grabbed a red cardigan for the day. I do like red and aqua together, especially with the holidays? You see that combination in decorating.
Plus, pictures in natural light are just so much better.
Now, I have to say, brrrr it is cold and I am finished with pictures!
Remember no more Archers for awhile, I just had a couple of beautiful sweater knits delivered to my door today. I have to finish a Christmas gift and then onto those sweater knits!
