The idea for this top was born when the only sweater knit I had was this pink sparkly fabric, usually that would have meant I would switch fabrics but I’m following along with the Fabricista Fashion Challenge which this week was sweater knits. I love this fabric the problem was making something that wouldn’t be immature. Which in turn led to me thinking of raglan tops which I then made with the sparkly pink fabric
The Pattern I Used
I look for women raglan top pattern online and finally found this great pattern. To keep things simple I just followed the pattern instructions, and it went together really quickly. All the instructions were clear and very easy to follow. I don’t have anything else to say just because it was so easy.
What I Changed
A few things I changed was omitting the sleeves cuff and waistband.I only hemmed them instead. The neckband took me a while to pin and then sew in place but again it was still easy. Another thing I did was taking it in an inch as the pattern only went to small/medium, and I’m smaller than that.
I love this top and foresee it getting a lot of wear this winter. It was so easy to make I would quickly make another. Overall this is a lovely top and worth a try. Also, this pattern is free. So what holding you back? Sew one already.
