I thought it was finally time to post the finished photos of my Rope Print Archer from Britex Fabrics now that they have the related post up on their blog. I LOVE this fabric! It’s a silky soft ivory habotai with a beautiful drape. It seems a bit heavier than other habotai I’ve worked with, in an amazingly good way. It sewed together like a dream and I’ve been getting lots of wear out of it, maybe too much wear. The post done in correlation with this shirt can be seen on the Britex Blog here, it’s full of tips and tricks for making a button down shirt in silk. I’d post it here but it seems like it may be a bit repetitive with the sew along going on. If you’re working ahead on a silk version though, you should check it out!
