i’m really enjoying building my wardrobe up with handmades that i can wear on a daily basis. somewhere in the last year or so, the clothes i’ve been sewing became the clothes i reach to wear first – not just because i made them and i’m forcing myself to, but because they’re actually my favorite pieces in the closet!
take this shirt, for example. if you’ve seen me in person in the last few weeks, you’ve probably seen this shirt. i just LOVE this thing and i can’t stop wearing it. i finished sewing on those buttons, put it on, and it immediately became part of my regular rotation. the perfect chambray from Bolt and Grainline’s Archer are just a really good team, you guys.
please head on over to the Bolt blog for more pics and info about my new favorite shirt (i made a few fit changes this time), and hey check it out – Bolt sells Grainline paper patterns in the shop now! go go go! i may even see you there – after i saw this post of their new arrivals, i can’t wait to get all up in that nani IRO (it looks like they have the fabric i made my previous Archer with)!
oh sorry, gotta mention one more thing – the bag i pose with in the photos was made by my friend (and Archer maker supreme) Kelly out of Pendleton wool. she used my tutorial and this thing is awesome and i feel way cooler than i am when i take it out on date nights. thanks Kelly!
