Jalie 3245–Raglan Tee Again

I had to make it again.


I made this one with a super cozy, lightweight wool blend sweater knit and dark grey ribbed knit sleeves. I cut it about two inches shorter this time.


I still have the same swayback “problem” and I’m still not going to fix it.


Hello, matching side seams. Woot!


I like the open neck on this pattern. I think adding length and a cowl to this pattern would make a great sweater dress. Like awesome.


This coral neck scarf I made a while ago. It’s a large rectangle and I just sewed one end shut with a french seam. Voila, a bright scarf to pep up any outfit. I made this scarf several weeks ago and strangely, it matches the orange color in this top.




Next up: I’m really not sure. The kids are begging for jammies so that might be next on my list. All three of my girls want more pajamas like these ones with the lace arms. The Boy wants more funny pants. Hmmmmmm.

Love it! I haven't tried Jalie yet but every time I see one of their patterns on your blog I want to give it a try. I sometimes fix the extra back fabric issue with the quick and dirty elastic method: Draw a 4-5" line on the wrong side of the back in the area that needs some help. Cut a 3 inch piece of elastic (1/4" - 3/8") and pin the ends of the elastic to the beginning/end of line. Using a zig-zag stitch, stretch and sew the elastic along the line. I don't know if that would help or if you even want to bother, but I thought I'd pass it along! It's pretty easy to unpick if you don't like it.

Such a great top, I love the fabric! Cool scarf, it really dresses up the top. My kiddos need pj pants in a bad way, too.

Well, I wasn't sold on this pattern until you did this version. This is dynamite! Now I will have to seriously consider it.

Great top. What is it with kids and jammies? Mine still want them too, even at 15 and 13.

Gorgeous fabric and fantastic work on the stripe matching - it's really satisfying when it turns out perfect isn't it?

Hi Dawn, Would it be possible for you to email me about removing a comment from a post I left in the past? I can't find an email address to contact you through so this is the only way I can think to get in touch! Thanks!
