Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Grainline Studio - Archer Shirt
I'm super excited to be part of the Minerva Craft Blogger Network! I recently shared my sewing plans for my first 3 months, check it out HERE to see what I'll be getting up to. Thanks so much to Minerva for having me on board, I had so much fun choosing my projects.

Each month when my post goes live on the Blogger Network, I'll be posting a little preview here with my usual sewing summary and an image or two, but all the images and my full pattern review will be in my full Minerva post! Got it? Right....

My land-girl inspired Archer shirt!
For my November, and first, Minerva make I chose the Archer Shirt by Grainline Studio, a pattern I've been eyeing up for quite some time. I wanted to create a vintage inspired land-girl shirt in a classic plaid fabric.

Sewing Summary:

Sewing time: I spent the best part of a day on this, with plenty of tea breaks and time to make sure my top-stitching was neat and pressing throughout for a crisp finish.

Modifications: None!

Fit: Okay. Too big on the sleeves for sure, but I could definitely size down at least one size and down two sizes for a fitted shirt.

Difficulty: Nice and simple. A great project for adventurous beginners to learn lots of new skills.

Watch out for: Tidy top-stitching, pattern matching if applicable and getting the collar nice and neat.

Make Again?: Yes! I'm sure this will become a wardrobe staple for me. Plus Minerva Crafts have so many gorgeous colours in this plaid fabric, it's hard to resist making another version!

I hope you like my first Minerva make!
Thanks for reading.
