So I’ve made this raglan top multiple times since I bought this pattern. I’ve made it in adult sizes and many times in kid sizes too. It’s a great pattern. I hadn’t really ever looked much at the tank pattern. But, it’s another Jalie winner. I love the back on it.
Here’s some National City Swap Meet fabric. By now you know I love that place. Doesn’t this top go well with my Jalie jeans?? This is my standard Jalie size of S. No alterations. I made the shorter size for this red/black/white version.
Oh, do you see more perfect rows of coverstitching?!?!?! Usually on fabric like this, I have to prep it by either fusing it or adding the Sulky SOLVY Stabilizer to the hem to stabilize it. This just sewed right up. That’s because I have the BEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD. I feel like I say that a lot, but it’s true.
You see perfect rows of coverstitching because my husband just bought me this:
SSSSQQQQQQQQQQQUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! See!!! The best!!!!
I was using a Viking Huskylock 936 which is a combo serger/coverlocker. That was okay, but this machine is AMAZING! One of these days, I will do a overview of what exactly I have in my sewing room, because it has changed quite a bit in the last couple of years. You can bet you’ll be seeing a lot knit garments for a while. Now to get a binder!!!! I’ve been poring over Debbie Cook’s information to figure out what to get and where to buy it.
