This is the Grainline Studio Archer using Jen’s modifications for a sleeveless version, found here. I further modified the pattern by not putting the collar in and by creating a mandarin collar by shaving off a few cm’s from the collar stand. The swiss dot was very easy to work with. I used french seams throughout because of the sheer fabric.
This was my second Archer, and it came together pretty quickly, especially considering that I left the sleeves and collar off! I really couldn’t have done this without the sew-along. It lets noobs like myself make a nice shirt! How cool is that!
