Classic Sew Confident Box - January

*** Available to order from November 15 to December 14. Ships after January 2. ***

If you've been around the sewing world for a little while, you've either heard of or perhaps sewn your own Archer Shirt. It is the classic button-up indie sewing pattern out there right now. So to say that it was a pre-requisite to have it in one of our boxes would not be an understatement.

This button-up covers all the elements of shirt-making: pointed collar, button placket, buttoned cuffs, patch pockets and a back yoke. But with Grainline's excellent drafting and detailed instructions (there is even a sewalong on their site), it becomes far easier than you expect to sew! When you're done making this shirt, I wouldn't be surprised if you feel like you can tackle any sewing project. More...
