Raglan Blog Tour Giveaway!

Wow. What a long journey of many, many, many raglans it has been! First I want to take a second to say thank you to a couple of people, Tibeca of Sewing by Ti was awesome and did lots of work to make sure that we had the designers providing us the patterns so we wouldn't go broke doing this project. Also, she never once made me feel bad when my raglan Thursday's turned into Raglan Fridays. Thanks Ti. You're the best.

Secondly, I want to thank all the lovely ladies who offered their patterns up to be review, compared, and talked about! You all are awesome and I know that you've probably helped more than a few people find their perfect raglan!

Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank our Awesome fabric sponsors, Raspberry Creek Fabrics, BWD Fabrics, and Cali Fabrics! We've got $50 in gift certificates and 4 yards of fantastic cotton Lycra to give away, as well as a lot of raglan patterns to give away, too!

I'm going to take a minute to do a few "awards" of sorts.

Most Likely to Sew Again
Here is where I show you how terrible I am at making decisions, but I have reasons for all three.
1. Greenstyle Centerfield Raglan - I want to make one in nylon lycra with a hood for workout!
2. Patterns for Pirates Slim Fit Raglan because it's slender enough to be completely my style
3. Hey June Lane Raglan. I'm enthusiastic to try her updated version of the lane that she just offered for free to everyone that has purchased.  

Best for Taller Girls
By taller I mean 5'6" ... I had to make no length adjustments to the Rainier raglan! as well as no length adjustments to the P4P Slim fit with the curved hem.


What a fun experience this has been! Now I'd love to see your renditions, too! Tibeca has a link party up on her blog so please feel free to add any raglan you've sewn to the link party. 

Below you can find all the details for the fabric and pattern giveaway! This runs from 03/25 - 03/28 so get your entries in soon!

    1. Thanks sweet girl! <3 Glad you enjoyed it! Skirts would be fun, especially going into Summer! I'd also love to review athletic tights. There are so many on the market right now, I think it would be really useful.

      Loved seeing your creations for Wallace this past year, keep them coming! You make having and sewing for a boy look like so much fun!

  6. I only very recently discovered your blog and I really enjoyed getting to see the comparisons for all the different Raglans. I own probably 4 different patterns and have only made 1 so far but wasn't fond of the fit so this will help me decide which to go with next!

    I would love to see a series on women's shorts. I have been searching for a good pattern but it hard to decide!
