Silk Grainline Archer
I bought my chosen fabric from Backstreet Bargains last year. It is silk/linen/nylon and quite a loose weave. My original plan was for a Sewaholic Granville but I was a little concerned that the loose weave wouldn't be suitable for such a fitted style. I settled on Grainline Archer after much deliberation. I tend to over analyse my fabric and pattern choices some times and spend way too much time weighing up the pros and cons and often I put the fabric back in the cupboard because the decision can get overwhelming. Not this time though! I threw caution to the wind and made it up into a Granville. This is the fourth time I have made this pattern. The first two were for me and the third for Courteney.
Because my shirt is so classic I did briefly consider blinging it up slightly with some statement buttons but in the end went with plain white pearl shirt buttons I bought at Aliexpress for my blue and white Sewaholic Granville, reasoning that my intention was for a plain shirt and not a statement shirt. I am glad that I chose the plain buttons, because as I predicted the shirt has slotted into my wardrobe quite nicely and has been worn a ton already.
This is a great pattern and I am sure there will be many more as a classic shirt is something I reach for a lot especially in spring and autumn.
