Floral & Stripe Raglan

10-floralstripeLast week I mentioned that I was looking to ‘knock-off’ a few shirts that I had seen at a local boutique store. To kick off my inspired sewing, I opted to sew up the raglan stripe\floral knit tee.

For this one, I used Peek-a-boo Pattern shop’s Rainier Raglan pattern – this one has a more relaxed fit and a wider neckband than some of the other versions I own so this one seemed most like the tee I originally saw. For the body of the shirt, I used a black and white jersey strip that I had been hoarding stashing from Gorgeous Fabrics and for the sleeves, I used the floral jersey from April’s Girl Charlee’s Knit Fix bag.

Since I’ve reviewed this pattern before, I’ll skip the low down on how it sewed up, but will say that this was easily put together and fits perfectly. I’m very happy with the end result! Here’s the breakdown of the cost of this one – keep in mind that the original tee in the store was $35.
