Raglan Pattern Tour: Peekaboo Rainier Raglan II

Peekaboo take two! I sewed up a second one in sweater knit and made a few modifications that I'd like to share with you.

If you're looking for specific commentary on the pattern and how it compares with the other raglans we're sewing as part of the Raglan Tour, check out my review post here. It will give you all the details and charts to compare!

I'm tattling on myself. This was actually the FIRST one I sewed, and although it's one of my favorites, I didn't think it was a fair representation of the pattern. I wouldn't want someone to see this, sew it in normal knit and come out with a different result - so I thought I'd show you both!

P.S. Thank Amy, for making me feel like a bombshell!

I chose I sweater knit I got from a mystery box from Sincerely Rylee Fabrics on Facebook. She has the comfiest knits! Sweater knits are pretty much always going to be looser than a normal cotton lycra blend. I tried to use the self fabric for the neck band too... well, that was an experiment gone wrong. So I just turned it into a self facing and hit it with a twin needle and called it a day. It really elongated the neck line giving the slouchy, sexy look. I popped a tank under for some bra strap coverage.

I looked and looked for a spray baste to hold the lace on, however I wasn't able to locate any at Joann's. So I pinned the sheeeat out of the lace and basted it on with thread. After I had sewn all sides, I just sewed the Rainier Raglan like normal by following the instructions. :)

This sweater has turned into a favorite of mine! I wear it every week since I've sewn it. Nick loves it too, I can pop it on with jeans to look dressed up / down. I don't know how that makes sense, but trust me that it does. Maybe it looks relaxed yet not lazy... lol I don't know.
