Yours is my favorite Archer I've seen. Love the classic stripe with the contrasting fabric. The fit looks great--love a lettering, classic button-down.

I could just admire your workmanship all day long. In fact, I'm feeling like a real SLUG for not STEPPING IT UP in the sewing room, after seeing your MASTERPIECES. :o) Truly unique and stunning. You're such an inspiration!

Anyone who is interested in the 12 month sew along, I've set up a Flickr group called "12 Months of "Grainline Studios Archer Shirt" Sew along". Any ideas of other places to get the word out?

Love your Archer shirt, I would like to join the 12 months of Achers' sew along. Is it on flickr?

I like your shirt very much! The flirty fabric you used to line the collar band, cuffs etc makes a very nice contrast with the strict striped fabric of the garment. Your sewing looks professional:)

Oooh, I might...I'm sending you a PM.

Thanks ladies! ArtAttack, I think you could easily make it more fitted by contouring the side seams or even adding some lengthwise darts. Others have described this as oversized and boxy but I haven't found that to be the case. I did do the sleeves and cuffs two sizes smaller, since I don't like excess fabric there. I hope you decide to join in. I'd LOVE to see all the colorful Archers you would dream up! (The pattern is downloadable.)

OMG! This is adorable!! Your work is impeccable! I see not ONE skipped stitch. As cute as it can be with this combo. Can that shirt be made a little more fitted without too much alteration? I might get in on the sew-along, but don't have the pattern yet...

Love your crisp looking striped shirt. The contrast facings are amazing. I can just picture that beautiful china!
