Hey there! Hope you are all doing fine and having such wonderful summer days as we finally have!
I have fallen in love with a new pattern! Archer button up shirt by grainline. Wow,...my absolute favorite blouse pattern.
I know this is not so summery, but it is perfect for the office with freezing cold airconditioning and cooler summer evenings.
I chose a lightweight cotton in creme with little circles in blue and brown.
Further, I added these wooden buttons. To put one on the outer edge of the pocket was the idea of my mama. Ah, she is genius! ;)
But, coming back to the pattern, this blouse has a perfect loose fitting. Neither extremely oversized nor too tight.
The pleat at the back allows extra room for moving without leaving you with a huge back.
As I mentioned in earlier posts, I am usually not a great fan of standard blouse collars. I use to feel very conservative wearing that, but this one is fabulous. Not so large and stiff.
So this is how I will leave for office tomorrow! I truely recommend this pattern. It is extremely well drafted and the instructions are easy to follow.
I am pretty sure, this pattern will become an evergreen in my pattern collection!
Have a good summery week everybody.
