(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!

Reversible Overshirt:

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.
