Show Off Saturday: Striped and Floral Raglan Top (for me!)

This week I finally got to try out one of the patterns in the latest Ottobre Magazine (Issue 5/2015). The moment I saw this raglan top, I wanted to try it in a floral and stripes combination.

There has been at least one Ottobre women’s raglan top pattern each year (I’ve been subscribing for sooooo long) and I’ve made others, but I really love this version. It is a comfortable loose fit with cuffed sleeves. I shortened the sleeves by about 5 inches. Because I have short arms, and because I didn’t want them to be really long like their picture.

Both of these fabrics came from The Fabric Market. Both the striped fabric and the floral fabric are a soft cotton blend jersey with beautiful drape. I shared tips for sewing with knit fabrics last week. 

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
