Description

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.

     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. 

Both Standard sizes 00-18 and Curvy Fit sizes 14-34 are included with your purchase.

    Remy Raglan Top

    Posted by Katy on 9th Jun 2021

    I haven’t had chance to make the top yet but I have drawn up the pattern in my size ready to go. There are a lot of unnecessary pieces in this pattern as it contains an extensive size range, including separate pattern pieces for a curvy fit. I feel it would be better if these were divided into 2 patterns. The tissue paper itself is too thin. It has to be so thin to stuff all the pattern pieces into the one envelope. The thin paper and multitude of pattern pieces made it a more lengthy processes for drawing off my size. That said I am now ready to get sewing and looking forward to making what looks like an easy straightforward top.
