Another Archer button up shirt made using Liberty cotton lawn with a wonderful turtle print.
As ever, this pattern is drafted extremely well and came together beautifully. The fabric really helps!
I only put one pocket on, and also lengthened the sleeves and body length by 2". With hindsight, I might only need 1" extra length on the sleeves. The buttons are from my vintage megastash and the hem is finished with bias tape as I still can’t hem a curve.
