thank for the review. its nice to see comparison between patterns
Thanks, Rachel, both are great patterns, hard to pick just one.
Lori how do you finish the seams on the archer? I like to flat fell finish but find the smaller seam allowance annoying.
I am a serger person, I serge all the seams after stitching on my blouses. One exception - french seams on sleeves if I am going to roll up my sleeves.
Thanks you must have read my mind as I also wondered how they compared. Great tips - thanks
You are welcome.
You've done a beautiful job of both. Thanks for the comparison.
thanks so much. They are two great patterns.
Thanks for the comparison. I've been wanting to make a button-up but haven't picked the pattern yet. This helps!
Jennifer, I would go with the Archer for your first shirt. It is a great pattern plus Grainline has a nice sewalong for the pattern on their blog.
Thank you for taking time to share your experiences. Your sewing skills are just fantastic, as is your ability to match up patterns and fabrics and fitting techniques.
Oh, you are too kind. I am getting much better at matching fabric with a pattern.
Thank you for your comparison.
You are welcome, Anne
fun comparison. I still love the Burda blouse - the collar and pockets are so elegant. And as you point out, it works well with a soft fabric, my favorite.
The Burda blouse is very classic styling.
Great post Lori! Thanks for comparing the two...so helpful. Both look great on you!
Thanks, Margo, I have a hard time picking just one. I think they are different enough to make both! LOL
I think you made the Burda shirt too large, so perhaps the comparison is unfair. Love your Archer shirts.
You might be right Gail. My first Archer was too big also. Sew and learn.
Nice comparison! Both have great features.
Thanks, Linda, I like them both very much.
I love your style. Very nice. Expecting more creative works :) Keep sharing :) case study essay writing service
