Archer Shirt - More Gingham

Grainline Archer Shirt in Style Maker Fabrics' gingham


I love gingham and I cannot lie!  You all might get tired of seeing gingham garments, but this fabric is just so fun and says spring.  I need spring here.


This is the Archer Shirt  pattern again, remember I just made a red gingham one with a decorative ribbon band.  I wanted to do this trim again but couldn't find the right color ribbon to match my peach gingham fabric from Style Maker Fabrics. This was a purchase from last year but Michelle has several other gingham fabrics

I used a white ribbon and a decorative stitch and made my own decorative ribbon.  I love how this looks and I have a Instagram highlight on how I did this.  So head to my Instagram and see the tutorial, it is Stitched Ribbon

I did use an embroidery thread to stitch the ribbon down

I really don't have much more to say about this pattern other than I love it.  Here are a few more photos

I use the Grainline Studio's tutorial on plaid matching 

So another great gingham shirt for my wardrobe and I have one more piece of gingham fabric for one last Archer Shirt but I am thinking about a Butterick pattern.  Do you have a favorite shirt pattern?

  1. Such a great shirt! I love the ribbon in the button band. I also love gingham and made a gingham Bonn Shirt (my favorite shirt pattern) last year. This year I want to try another pattern though.

  2. Love the creativity of adding the ribbon stripe to the button side of your shirt! It's a pretty shirt and that detail just takes it up a notch!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn, I really like this,too. It was fun to use those stitches that I don't use as often as I should.

  3. What a lovely shirt! Love the ribbon detail. With even the most basic machines having some sort of decorative stitching, why is it that people forget that they have the capability of making their own decorative trim? Thank-you for the inspiration.
