Nani Iro Archer - the second

Nani Iro Archer - the second

But not the last.

Much like the tops in my last few posts, these are the types of garments I really wear a lot.  Basic silhouettes in beautiful (or fun) fabrics.  This may be my favorite fabric ever.  I've talked about my love for Nani Iro double gauze before.  but this soft, lush floral is just to die for.  TO DIE FOR.

Unlike the last one I posted, I made very few changes to this Archer.  I did a sleeveless version (hello, I live in New Orleans), but other than that, it's as drafted.  You can see really how flattering this shirt is.  For my shape and my style, I really don't see myself needing another button down shirt pattern.

There's not much to say about this pattern at this point.  But I do love all the shirtmaking details that go into it.  Archer made me fall in love with topstitching, I think.  I find myself using a lot of the techniques I learned with this pattern in other places!

I used some self made bias tape to bind the armholes.  The pretty pink buttons are from Promenade Fabrics (local).  They are by far my favorite place for buttons.  I also love browsing the fabric, although most of it is a little fancy for my lifestyle.

Here's a closeup of that gorgeous Nani Iro double gauze, purchased of course from Miss Matatabi.  

Pattern:  Grainline Archer
