(For the Reversible Archer, the stream suddenly crashed and restarted all by itself, a link is here (the second image) and also in the stream description).
Notes: This is a go-to pattern for me. The sleeves are a little long and full so I have adjusted them. Quilting cotton is a bit heavy, try garment weights. Getting the fit right will let you make these anytime you like!
I've made five of these so far. For the most recent one, I've delved in to fitting the Archer a bit better and in a different style by raising the armhole, adjusting the sleeve cap, adding back princess lines and hand pockets and adding a bit to the hip area. This version is the Chevron flannel with floral lining (there are a few videos especially since I Adjusted the fit and created the pattern one one day -but it's in two videos as explained since the live stream crashed), a Cutting video where I added the style lines to this Reversible Overshirt version, and then Sewin in two parts.
