The pattern as I've shown here is definitely a beginner's pattern. You only have 4 pattern pieces (front, back, sleeve and neckband) and they go together easily. BUT, if you're in for a challenge, this pattern does include a fun triangle cut out neck line that will push your sewing skills OR use the v-neckline. I have to admit, even I struggle with v-necklines. Not sure if it is because I am always rushing through each project OR if I need to stop trying so hard to make it look perfect. Either way, when you're ready for a challenge, the v-neckline and triangle inset neckline are both waiting for you.
All Raglan Patterns use my favorite Purple Seamstress Black Cotton/lycra for the body. The sleeves are from a Girl Charlee Knit Fix. Surprisingly, these sleeves are just right for me! I like my sleeves a little long so the fit is exactly right.
So who should definitely get this pattern? Anyone that struggles to get a good shoulder fit on their patterns (whether due to full or small bust). Going by high bust measurement makes this a lot easier to fit. Also, the color blocking isn't anything you'll find in any of the other patterns. This pattern does a great job of skimming over tummies and has a nice fit through the sleeve. Save 20% on your copy of the Kitschy Coo Trifecta with the coupon code: TRIFECTA
Be sure to click through and check out what Art of Oh has to say about the Greenstyle Center Field Raglan. I've actually owned this pattern for some time. It's a great pattern that just received a new look with the recently released add on pack. And don't forget to come back next week for Raglan Thursday!
