This week I finally got to try out one of the patterns in the latest Ottobre Magazine (05/2015). The moment I saw this raglan top, I wanted to try it in a floral and stripes combination.
There has been at least one Ottobre women's raglan top pattern each year (I've been subscribing for sooooo long) and I've made others, but I really love this version. It is a comfortable loose fit with cuffed sleeves. I shortened the sleeves by about 5 inches. Because I have short arms, and because I didn't want them to be really long like their picture.
Both of these fabrics came from The Fabric Market. Both the striped fabric and the floral fabric are a soft cotton blend jersey with beautiful drape. I shared tips for sewing with knit fabrics last week.
