Seraphic raglan tee – now with added lace!

This is the second time that I’ve used the Figgy’s Seraphic tee pattern for Clare.  And after the success of this one, there are another two cut out!

A few weeks ago Clare and I were in Myer checking out the autumn/winter fashions. Clare also needed a new dressing gown – normally I would sew one for her, but we/she decided that if we bought one instead (there was a lovely soft one on sale in a print she liked) then I would have more time to sew her more interesting clothing. There were loads of raglan sleeved tops there, many in mixed prints or textures. I had a lightbulb moment and remembered this remnant of vibrant fluro yellow/chartreuse stretch lace that I had in stash.

Fortunately I also had a flecked stretch knit in stash that was pretty much a perfect match for the lace! I cut the size 8/9 out for Clare. Unfortunately that is the largest size that this pattern goes to. I cut the front and back pieces with the lace and knit as one. I also cut bands for the neck, sleeves, and hem. I think I cut them around 2 1/2 inches wide (could have been 3 inches).

This was an incredibly straightforward garment to sew – raglans often are! Sew arms to body, sew sleeve/side seams, add the bands. All construction was on the overlocker, and I decided to skip topstitching the bands in place.

Clare loves it and I can tell that it will be worn a lot as the weather cools down. There is enough room for her to layer something underneath, but it’s not too big that she can’t wear it as it is or easily layer something over it. Success!
