This week I finished my latest in a long row of Archer’s, and my first chance to use it was for a job interview on Friday. At least I’m hoping that it’s my good luck shirt. I’ll find out later this week. Damn it, I just jinxed it, didn’t I?
The fabric is a lovely flannel from Stof og Stil that I bought ages ago. Plaid’s been everywhere this winter (love Laney’s lumberjack version), and I finally got the reason why. And flannel… so damn soft.
In the photo’s I’m wearing it with my all time favourite memade skirt – Tilly’s Miette Skirt, made from an über cheap black faux leather, scored on Walthamstow market for no money at all. It was the first ‘proper’ piece of clothing I made when I’d just started sewing, and I’ve used it loads. I’ve got a few more A line skirts in the pipeline because of it.
The pattern matching on the Archer isn’t great, but ok. I went for plain silver snap buttons this time – which is such a nice change to my usual button hole hassle!
