The Waterfall Raglan is a new pattern by Chalk and Notch that I tested last month.It is a relaxed style pattern for a top or dress with different sleeve lengths and pocket options for knit fabric. I used a grey star cotton jersey bought at Fabrics Galore to make the long-sleeved top version.When I tried it on her prior to hemming I felt I need all the length so used a very small hem which combined with fabric that that wanted to curl a lot resulted in a hem that doesn’t want to stay down.
Everything else about the fit and style worked out well and was quick to sew.Just in case grey could be considered dull I made some gold leggings and headband to pair the shirt with. I don’t have a leggings pattern so just used another pair as a cutting guide.The gold foil fabric sewed easily using the overlocker but my machine point blank refused to sew through it so I left the ankle unhemmed.For a chance to win a copy of the Waterfall Raglan plus all the other patterns by Chalk and Notch, an UpCraft Club gift certificate and a $50 gift certificate for Raspberry Creek Fabrics enter via the rafflecopter below.
