Style and comfort come together in this top! The Lane Raglan is a 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. Options include:
Elbow length, 3/4 length, long, or long banded sleeves
Curved or banded hem
A separate front pattern piece with a built-in full bust adjustment.
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, size up and use fleece for a sweatshirt! The choice is yours!
This versatile yet simple top is a very easy sew, perfect for your first foray into knit garments. If you choose to use the wristbands and waistband there is no hemming.
