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 are also options for elbow length sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, long sleeves with no wristband, a chest pocket, a hood, and wristbands with thumbholes! A separate front pattern piece with built-in FBA is also included with the pattern for larger bust sizes. 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.
This pattern includes fully illustrated sewing instructions, including hints and tips on how to sew with knit fabric.
