Hello everyone.  Sorry I’ve been so absent, there’s just a lot going on in my life right now.  In easily condensed bullet point form: I have a wedding to plan for by May next year.  Thankfully I decided to be posh and hired a planner because… I need to make my wedding dress and two bridesmaids dresses by May next year because I decided this is a good idea. I am moving in December. My contract […]

Turns out I love button down shirts, and I’ve made 4 Grainline Archers to date.  My two most recent […]

It’s Archer Appreciation month apparently!  This is great because Archer is one of my absolute favourite patterns ever.  I’ve made two to date, one of which was actually in the month of December, so it’s not cheating. This is my ‘muslin’ Archer made from a silk/cotton blend that was far too stiff for a loose shirt like Archer.  It worked well for my Chardon skirt but not so well for this shirt.  I’ve found that […]
