Grainline Studio | Sew & Tell | Andrea of Four Square Walls
I’m sure you guys have seen this, Andrea’s blog is a pretty awesome read, but I just had to feature this. How often do you get two Grainline Studio patterns in one outfit?! Well, I do it all the time, but besides me. I seriously want to steal both of these garments, so if they go missing, I do not know who took them. That check is soooo good…it’s really hard to find a good large gingham check! Anyway, read on for more info and click over to Andrea’s blog to see what else she’s up to. A lot, I’ll tell you!

Name  Andrea

Pattern  Archer Shirt and Moss Skirt

Andrea’s Blog  Four Square Walls

Her Project Post  Ging’um Up

What type of fabric / materials did you use? “For the shirt, I used a homespun cotton (not spun in MY home, however) in black and white gingham. The skirt is red stretch twill from fabric.com. ”

Tell us more about your project! “Ah, this is my fourth Archer shirt and my third Moss mini. What I love about Jen’s patterns is that they are foundation pieces you can make multiple times without feeling self-conscious about it — or bored! And they obviously work well together to create whole outfits.

I’ve been wanting a large-scale gingham button-up for quite some time, so when I finally ran across the perfect lightweight fabric for it, I had it washed, cut and sewn up in a beautiful new Archer in a hot minute. I did slim down the fit on this one. I wear it all the time!

I love mixing black, white and red, so I thought it perfect timing to make a little red Moss number. For this version I lengthened the hem of view A by four inches and omitted the pockets (I know, I’m crazy to ever omit pockets). I would recommend making this pattern with woven fabric that has an eensy bit of stretch because of its fitted style.”
