It's time for another sewing pattern test... This time, the new Wrigley Raglan from Love Notions! The Wrigley Raglan is a slim-fit baseball-style tee written specifically with girl's in mind. Sewn entirely of knit fabrics, it is a quick sew that can mostly be constructed using your serger.

Here are the pattern basics Love Notions- Wrigley Raglan;

-The Wrigley Raglan is written for sizes 2T-16 AND 8P-16P. This is the first Love Notions girl's pattern to include extended sizes.
-The Wrigley Raglan features three sleeve lengths- short, 3/4 and long.
-The Wrigley Raglan can be sewn with split v-neck or banded.
-The Wrigley Raglan features three lengths- tee, tunic or dress.
-The Wrigley Raglan dress can be sewn with pockets.
-The Wrigley Raglan has the option to add a hood.
-The Wrigley Raglan features printable layers and trimless pattern pieces (ie, print only the size you need).
-The Wrigley Raglan features a high-low shirt tail.

I sewed up a size six, short sleeve, banded neck, fitted tee Wrigley Raglan. We tested the heck out of this pattern until it was juuuuust right!! I really appreciate that designer Tami seriously takes tester feedback and incorporates it into the final product. From arm width, shirt length to neck..... we tested it until it was perfect!

This all-knit shirt is a quick sew on the serger. I only used my regular sewing machine for topstitching. The Wrigley Raglan fitted tee has four pattern pieces- front, back, sleeve and neckband. 

There is lots of room to personalize this pattern! From color-blocking, to using just one main fabric for the front, you can definitely make this pattern your own! The Wrigley Raglan would be the perfect pattern for an old t-shirt upcycle (like the one I did using hubby's old Muppets Shirt)! I have plans to even turn the Wrigley Raglan into a fitted rashgaurd out of swim fabric for the pool...!

Even my dress-loving girly-girl loved this shirt. It's comfy, casual and perfect for play! With summer camp and Kindergarten in the near future, the Wrigley Raglan will be the perfect shirt/tunic/top for my active five-year old! Now, go forth and enjoy the Wrigley Raglan from Love Notions!!
