This was love at first sight!
This is the Hi Lo Raglan pattern from Jamie Christina. The best part is that there was no waiting around to get this one made up: download, tape together, fabric from stash and wolla a new top all in a day :-)
There's not really much to say about this one, so let me start with fabric - all from the stash! The pattern is designed for a knit fabric but has enough ease that I used a woven lightweight satin for the body and a stretch mesh for the sleeves. I used some frusible stay tape around the neck edges before I began to sew - six seams in total.
The cuff end of the sleeves are raw, which is what I love about mesh. The bottom of the body is turned up and finished with a tricot stitch - I could have used a double needle, but nah!
Next time I make this, and there will be a next time, I'll add just a tad more ease around the hips. This one is a satin and just slides nicely over my skinny but there isn't a lot of room there. I like the length at the front and back - just right :-)
I purchased another two Jamie Christina patterns, because it was sale time, and because I've been thinking about nice and easy things to wear over the holidays. I couldn't pass up her Sol Hoodie and The Mission Maxi. I really like her Abbey Coat but that might have to wait until next winter.
Not much to say and not many pictures, but as always there are more photots on my Flickr -->
