Mediumweight Box - Archer Shirt

Regular price $79.99

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.

Skill Level: 

What you should know (or desire to learn): Attaching a collar, sewing buttonholes and button placket, inserting a yoke, sewing a sleeve placket, setting sleeves, attaching cuffs

Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Light Blue Brushed Oxford - Classic shirting makes for a shirt you'll love for years
  • Grey and Purple Brushed Tartan Twill - An unusual plaid will make you feel like an unusual lumberjack (in the best way possible)

Also in this box: Matching thread, interfacing, 9 buttons, and a sewing machine needle. Extra yardage will be provided for the plaid to accommodate pattern matching and bias cutting (if using).
