Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow?Simple. The hardest part was making sure you got the front to the sleeve in the correct place.
Raglan Ready to Sew
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Fabric Used:Muted green is rayon lycra; lace is stretch lace; mesh is from Fabric Mart (when it was on sale for $4/yard!); Purple 2-sided knit is from JoAnns and I have no idea what the fiber content is!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:For the brown polka dotted tee, I pretty much sewed it as is to make sure it fit well. Originally I had cut the entire pattern in size medium. When I went to try it on, I seriously took out that extra room. After that, I cut a size small on top and medium in the hips. The body front and back are lined with a cotton lycra in light brown.
The lace front version has a hi-low hem.
The purple version has the fabric turned one side up for the sleeves, and the other side up for the body. I added triangular side panels just for fun. One panel has stripes showing, the other has dots which matches the fronts and back. I also added a 2" ruffle at the bottom. Ruffles in knit are very slippery to sew!
Lastly, the 2nd green version - yes, it's the exact same fabric as the first! - has mesh contrast sleeves. It was cut as a tunic originally. I thought it too plain, so I used a Tina Givens trick and added pleats! Then, to tie it all together, I added a strip of the mesh at the bottom.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?This is a super easy pattern. I would lay out the pieces as they are to be sewn as pictured above. Otherwise one may get a side sewn to a sleeve...
Also, I do think a raglan tee is more casual than a set sleeve tee. Something to keep in mind when planning.
Conclusion: Super pattern, easy, and lots of different looks can be made from it. If you'd like to see more, visit me here.
