Style and comfort come together in this top! The Lane Raglan is a long sleeved women's knit top in sizes XS - 2XL. The cut is made to flatter a woman's body, with fitted sleeves, gentle shaping through the torso, and a wider neckband. There is also an option for a hood and wristbands with thumbholes! 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 waist measurement and not bust. If your fabric has the stretch capacity recommended in the pattern, it will stretch to fit most bust sizes.
