Raglan T-Shirt


Raglan sleeves are so quick to sew, but creating a seamless raglan sleeve pattern takes me ages. She's grown out of the pattern I created for the T-Shirts she's wearing here and here. Instead of resizing, I wanted to try a new one. Oliona pointed me to a ready made Raglan pattern - Nº 15 in Ottobre Kids Fashion 6/2010.

I've made quite a few. This one is my favourite - I really like the different shades and wrinkles of the hand dyed fabric.

Wow, this fabric is beautiful and so is the t-shirt itself.
Love your way of taking pictures too.

Very nice! Did you makes the skirt? are both materials on the skirt knit? I wanted to try making the knit waist band skirt but wasn't sure if I could mix fabrics? Get what I mean

That fabric you chose (made? wow!) is so beautiful! And all the colors go with the childs natural colours perfectly.

@ Jacqueline. Yes, you can mix the fabrics. When you sew them together, you stretch the elastic fabric and put some folds into the non-elastic fabric so that they have the same length. Hope this makes sense. It seems a little odd at first, but it's not difficult.

Hello! Popped over from flickr...this shirt is such a nice basic. You've inspired me to make some nice simple clothes in plain colours...lovely job!

OTTOBRE really does have nice basics. I really like their raglan and lap tee's. I love your simple designs.

The shirt looks great. Maybe I should order this pattern... so far I always made my own patterns.

@rahel. Making your own pattern is a lot nicer. But if you're looking to save time, the patterns in the magazine look really useful. You can always customize them. Which is something I am thinking of, of course ;)
