Sewing Tip: Seam allowances vary on the details, so pay attention.

Grainline Studio: Archer Button Up Shirt 11004

These shirts display elements of men’s shirts, plus feminine details. Both views have a two-piece, bias-cut undercollar, collar stand, lined yoke, separate placket, breast pockets, and set-in sleeves. The sleeves have continuous-lap plackets and two pleats going into a button cuff. One view has cuffs with cutaway corners and a center-back inverted pleat into the yoke seam. The other view has cuffs with 90-degree corners and a high-low hemline, created by a gathered peplum added to the back. The instructions include links to online tutorials. Our tester recommends inserting the sleeve in the round as it will hang better. Our staff seamstress recommends interfacing the undercollars. Make this shirt in cotton shirting, linen, voile, batiste, or a silk for evening.

(Sized 0–18 for busts 32–44 in.)
