One thing I got into sewing for was some good basics. In a time when I was rolling out a lot a lot of smart dresses, I needed something casual.
I used some scrap jersey to make this beautiful Raglan top:
Completed: 6th June 2016
I had been watching one on Asos (no pic… but its basically what I made!) but refrained from purchasing it because I didn’t know if it would be tight on my stomach area.
So what I did was cut a large rectangle for the base of the garment, similar to how I make all my other oversized ones. And then I traced out the two sleeves, extended to where a neck would be,
It was a simple sew and was in the time before my overlocker so I went for a french seam, I was going to then sew these seams down for an extra sporty jersey look, but i thought against it. I have put it on inside out a few times, but now I have my handmade tags, this shouldn’t be an issue anymore.
I will try this again but i don’t think i will buy fabrics specially for it, It is definitely a make reserves for jersey off cuts and ends.
