Archer Popover Inspiration & Fabric Suggestions

Now that our Archer Popover Pattern is out, we thought it would be fun to share some inspiration along with fabric swatches to make the look. All of the popover images are pulled from our Archer Inspiration board on Pinterest.

Plaid is always a classic with button ups and popovers but you can make yours special by choosing a fabric that is a bit different than the norm. Both these fabrics have a handmade look to them which we love.

White is always classic and goes with everything. We chose this crisp white Rag & Bone cotton poplin. Liberty floral is always beautiful but the bold florals aren’t always everyone’s cup of tea. This muted white on cream print is just perfect for all types of people!

You guys know that in my mind denim is always a great idea and always in style. A printed or woven pattern like the one we chose above can break up an all denim look and keep you out of the ‘Canadian Tux’ zone if that’s a place you don’t want to be. If you’re like me and you embrace the denim tux look, classic denim is one of my all time favorite Archer choices!

I know a lot of you are planning Archer Popovers, do you have your fabrics already? I’ve just cut a plaid one myself and can’t wait to steal a few minutes to sew it up. Found any Archer Popover perfect fabrics lately we should know about?

    I just ordered a few yards of black chambray to make the popover out of. I’m excited! I’ve already made a few Archers so I know the fit will be perfect.

  2. This is a great addition to the archer pattern! it is so versatile and allows you to be creative with different looks. Its been a while since I’ve sewn button down shirts, but these pictures are great for inspiration and makes you want to sew more. One thing that I like in this type of shirts is to use contrasting fabrics for the collar and button band and maybe add interest with ribbons or even lace.

    I love it in what looks like a denim shirt dress! Beautiful, comfortable and so wearable!

    I have a super soft chambray that I’m going to cut out as soon as I wash it. I started on a really fine wale dark green (almost black) corduroy yesterday. I’d be further along, but I didn’t pay attention to the instructions for the front placket where it said the shirt front was supposed to be right side DOWN. Fixed amid lots of grumbled cursing. I’ve made three regular Archers so I’m really excited about the popover!

    I have a cotton lawn in a blue and white border print – perfect for denim bohemian wear, as I am a denim look person too! my daughters have been known to make fun of me for loving anything with denim fabric i.e. shoes, handbags etc.

    I would love if you would do a tutorial about extending the Alder dress to a midi length too. There is a beautiful gingham dress that is sold out on Madewell, and I could picture it as an Archer/Alder hybrid extended to a midi length!

    I’m excited about the popover. I have several perfect shirt fabrics in my stash, but that plaid is calling my name!

    I’m planning to try it with the new Art Gallery fabrics denim!
