My Newest Lane

It’s that time of year again…

Lane Raglan time, that is! Can you tell that I love this pattern?

There’s not a lot to say about this pattern that I haven’t said already (here and here) – tried n’ true, my friends. I picked up this wonderfully soft heather blue french terry during the last 40% off sale at Fabric Outlet in SF. I’m not sure of the fiber content, but it’s probably primarily either rayon or polyester, with a good amount of spandex for stretch. It’s very very soft, with a fluid drape.

I cut my regular size and opted for the sleeve cuffs and a regular hem. I cut the hem straight across instead of curved. To add a bit of interest I used the reverse side of the fabric for the sleeve cuffs. I thought about doing a rolled hem to expose the reverse side on the bottom too, but decided against it.

The fabric makes this top more of a light sweater than a tee – awesome for fall and winter. I know I will be getting plenty of use out of this over the next few months, and it only took me about an hour and a half to whip up.

I’ve been recently reunited with my tripod and hope to catch up of photographing – and sharing – some of my recent makes. I just need to catch some of those precious daylight hours…
