What type of fabric or other materials did you use? Cotton plaid flannel from Robert Kaufman's Mammoth Plaid collection. It's so thick and squishy - not to mention warm!

Tell us about your project! I love wearing plaid flannel in the winter, so I decided to make my third Archer with this awesome Robert Kaufman plaid. It's a little thicker than a traditional plaid flannel shirting - which means this feels almost more like a lightweight jacket. It is AWESOME. I didn't have a lot of fabric to work with, so getting everything cut on-grain with the lines matching was a bit of a challenge, but I made it work. The sleeves don't mirror each other, but I actually quite like the effect. The shirt is finished with flat-felled seams all over, and just has traditional white shirting buttons as closures (pearl snaps would have been awesome, but again, this flannel is just too thick!). I cut the outer yoke and pockets on the bias, and left everything else on the straight grain - including the button band.
