Style and comfort come together in this top! The Lane Raglan is a long sleeved women's knit top in sizes XS - XL. The cut is made to flatter a woman's body, with fitted sleeves, gentle shaping through the torso, and a wider neckband. The possibilities for this top are endless. Depending on your fabric choice it can become anything from a sleep shirt to a sequined going-out top. Use contrasting fabric for the sleeves, cuffs, or optional chest pocket. Add a lace overlay to the bodice. Use a woven fabric or even leather for the pocket. Make the shirt out of nylon lycra and it becomes a rash guard. The choice is yours!
This versatile yet simple top is a very easy sew, perfect for your first foray into knit garments. Because the sleeve and waistband have cuffs, there is no hemming to worry about. The neckband is sewn on using a unique technique that was created to give everyone success no matter what type of knit you choose.
Please note that the size chart is based on your bust measurement. If you are using a very stretchy or slouchy knit, you can use your exact measurement with no ease. Thicker fabrics with less stretch like interlock or sweatshirting will require some ease, so choose the size with a larger finished bust measurement than your bust size. (errata: the pattern has waist measurements. Both are accurate, but you might find it easier to pick a size based on these bust measurements.)
This pattern includes 10 pages of fully illustrated sewing instructions, including hints and tips on how to sew with knit fabric. You will be prompted to download the .pdf file after payment.
