Hi friends!! I wanted to share with you this Lane Raglan by Hey June. I actually made this almost a year ago now. My mom had requested something like this for Christmas and I thought I might like one too :) I used some knit fabric that I ordered from Fabric.com (I think they were all Telio).
I added the arm bands for a more sporty look. To add them I cut lengths of the mustard knit 2.5" wide. Then I pressed down 1/2" on each side. After that I sewed them to each arm before I inserted them into the shirt.
My mom loved hers too! I really love this pattern (I should make more!). I wear it all the time and even as a pajama top from time to time. Its such a quick sew and the fit is spot on.
I've been trying to be a bit more intentional about my sewing lately. I used to sew whatever pretty thing I felt like, not considering what I actually wear in my day to day life. Needless to say, I have a closet full of handmade dresses that I rarely wear. It feels good knowing what I am making I will ACTUALLY wear. I'm hoping to get some more raglans and sweatshirts made before it gets chilly here. After I get my daughter's Halloween costume made of course ;)
So here's to comfy clothes we actually wear!!
