Tips & Tricks | Archer Yoke on the Bias

Grainline Studio | Tips & Tricks | Archer Yoke on the Bias

A quick little tip for your plaid Archers if you’d like to cut your outer yoke on the bias, consider cutting the inside yoke on the straight grain. I find this cuts down a bit on stretch at the shoulder seam and neckline. Super easy!

    Oh you read my mind. I am making my husband and myself matching plaid shirts for Christmas. Corney I know. I can’t wait to wear them. I’m using the archer pattern for mine, obviously. I just cut out the yokes on the bias. This will be my 7th archer. I LOVE THIS PATTERN.

    Thanks for the tip! This is what I just did with my plaid Archer, figured it might reduce the stretching, so I was right 🙂

    This is such a clever tip…shame I didn’t think of it before I sewed on my two bias cut yokes! But I’ll know for next time…and there will definitely be a next time!

    Now I want to make an Archer in plaid just so I can have a cool diagonal yoke lol. Why did I pick a solid color?!
