The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan

Sadly, summer is coming to an end and school is back in session! Soooo….. for sewing mamas, that means Back to School SEWING!!

Heather from All Things Katy!, here! My beautiful, funny, smart and sometimes sassy Lil’ Miss entered the big, bad world of KINDERGARTEN this week! Kindergarten!! How in the world did we get here…!?!? She is so ready… the question is, am I?!

While I try to wrap my mind around the fact that my sweet little baby is no longer a baby- that she’s now ready for the world of elementary school, school buses and after school activities let me talk to you about a great back to school wardrobe staple; The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan.

This all-knit top is perfect for recess on the playground and days in the classroom.  The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan is a, “…baseball-style tee… with girls in mind.” It includes a high/low shirt tail with multiple pattern options. The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan is comfy AND complies with school dress code. Win-win!

The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan– FRONT

I tested The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan. During the course of the pattern test, I sewed up three different shirts. All three garments were size six, regular neck-band, short sleeve, shirt length. I used an old t-shirt from hubby’s collection and four-way stretch cotton lycra for all three tees. Trust me when I say that this pattern was tested, tested and then retested to make sure that the fit, pattern pieces and tutorial were JUST RIGHT…!

Photographs are included in each step of the tutorial. There are directions on how to grade out the pattern to your daughter’s specific size included in the pattern. Each step is numbered and correlates to a photograph.

No back pictures of the back of The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan are included on the “inspiration page.” So, I’ve included a picture of the back of one of the Love Notions Wrigley Raglan that I sewed up during testing. I always appreciate a full back picture of any PDF sewing pattern that I am considering purchasing. I like to know where the end garment will hit, fit, hang, stretch across the body.

Overall, The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan is a great staple piece in your little one’s year-round wardrobe. The classic styling of The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan is great for all ages- young AND old (even pre-teens!). With multiple sleeve lengths included, this pattern can be sewn for the summer, fall and spring (and even winter, with a hood and layered over leggings!). Speaking of sleeves, the raglan-style sleeves, make this pattern easy to move in and easy to fit.

So (or, sew ;), I hope that this review of The Love Notions Wrigley Raglan has been helpful. Now, I’m going to sew up some more Love Notions Wrigley Raglan while I wait for my big, independent Kindergartener to get home from school! Happy sewing!
