Archer Popover
by yuzukat Follow

My desire to recreate a J.Crew shirt I didn't feel like paying for led me to take the plunge and make my first proper shirt!  (Can one call a popover a shirt...?)

    Wow, I never thought about putting a placket in this shirt!  I think I have my next Archer planned!  

  • Knit commented 4 years ago

    You did a great job on it.  I wish I could sew as well as you do.  I read your post on it and I couldn't tell the imperfections you mentioned.

  • Kelli commented 5 years ago

    This is beautifully crafted and photographed!

  • Sky Turtle commented 5 years ago

    I really like the fit of this!

  • Ginger commented 5 years ago

    Oh wow, I want one of these!  I love the popover look-- thanks for the insipration!

    You should definitely make at least one!  The hardest part for me, since I hadn't made this pattern before, was just figuring out where the center front was.

  • SownBrooklyn commented 5 years ago

    This is a stunning modification of Archer!!! I love it! And may need one of my own!

    Thank you!  The Archer makes for a perfect popover, in my opinion. :)

  • vvonder commented 5 years ago

    Super nice! I love the fabric!

    yuzukat replied 5 years ago

    Thank you!

  • Sarah Rudder commented 5 years ago

    Definitely going to make this! Now where to find the fabric...

    yuzukat replied 5 years ago

    You definitely should!  It's my first Archer and the pattern is totally deserving of all its praise.

  • emily_marie commented 5 years ago

    This is perfect! I've been eyeing the j.crew popovers, too :)

    Thanks!

    ....I have a total love/hate relationship with J.Crew.  Everytime they email me with a "TAKE AN EXTRA 30% OFF FINAL SALE" coupon code I am all over them like white on rice, only to be really disappointed with the poor quality of their women's wear.  I still covet all their Liberty print shirts/popovers though (and their blazers!), even though you know that at $150.00 per shirt and the 300% profit margin they've probably set, it's probably not even the real Tana Lawn! *sigh*

    yep, AGREE 100%. argh. I will be wearing their cords forever, though.

  • TheMissLinds commented 5 years ago

    this is beautiful, and love that fabric. is it chambray? 

    yuzukat replied 5 years ago

    Thank you, and yes, it's a linen chambray.

  • Denise commented 5 years ago

    Thanks!

  • StitchedbyShaeCannon commented 5 years ago

    I want this in dress length!!

    yuzukat replied 5 years ago

    It shouldn't be too hard to hack your own version!

    Jen at Grainline Studio has a tutorial on adding a placket and dress-ifying her tank pattern into a dress, which can be applied to the Archer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/grainline/sets/72157626373105736/with/5568163333/

  • Meike Bambuch commented 5 years ago

    The fabric looks great! Where did you get it form? Is it cotton?

    yuzukat replied 5 years ago

    Thanks Meike--I picked up the fabric from Mood in LA in the linen section.

  • Dandelion Drift commented 5 years ago
