If you’ve been a long time reader of this blog, you may have noticed that I LOVE raglan style shirts. In fact, they are probably one of my favorite things to sew. So, when I had the opportunity to test So Sew English’s new pattern, Rio Raglan, I jumped on the chance to give it a try. For my version I made a crew neck, short sleeve, “top” length shirt. However, this pattern has 2 different neckline options (crew and v-neck), 3 sleeve lengths (short, 3/4, and long), and 3 curved hem lengths (crop, top, and tunic – which is really the perfect dress length for most).
The pattern was easy to put together and I like the slim fit of this pattern. I can definitely see making this one again, but I think I want to try a V-Neck (I don’t have any raglans with that type of neckline) with 3/4 sleeves for fall… maybe in a plaid?
