THE REMY RAGLAN • Pattern
By SEW HOUSE SEVEN, The Remy Raglan is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Remy Raglan is a simple top that is quick to make and easy to wear with a relaxed fit. This top was originally designed to wear under the Burnside Bibs and with the Free Range Slacks during their respective photoshoots. Many customers inquired about the top and so it became the Remy Raglan pattern.
This top was designed to have the sleeves rolled up and it should be noted the sleeves look best that way. The fit is very loose and relaxed at the bust and waist and while it is not a cropped top, it is a short top designed to be worn with high waist pants and skirts.
The original design is version #1, plain and simple, however, version #2 offers a little visual interest to the front with a split center and keyhole button closure. There are two sleeve options - short sleeve and 3/4- length sleeves and both work with either versions #1 or #2.
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, sizes 0-20 and 14-34 are included with your purchase. Sew House Seven's sizing information can be found here. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: This top was originally designed for very light weight linen. While it can work in a variety of light weight woven fabrics, this top is the perfect, simple backdrop to let a beautiful linen shine. If you choose a more rigid fabric such as cotton lawn, the neck may appear a little smaller and the bottom hem will be a bit fuller and not drape as closely to the body. Also be aware that one-sided printed fabrics will not look good once the sleeves are rolled up. Be sure that the front and back sides of your fabric are presentable. Choose a light weight woven fabric that is not too stiff such as linen, cotton voile, silk noil, sand-washed silk linen blends (linen/rayon, linen/viscose, linen/Tencel) and cotton gauze.
Trims required: Matching thread, one button approximately 20mm (version #2).
Skill Level: Confident Beginner.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
Each pattern features an instruction booklet and pattern pieces printed on tissue paper.
