 Love Notions Rockford Raglan

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Love Notions Summer Lace Tour!

 Love Notions Rockford Raglan

Summer is the PERFECT time to add a little lace to your me-made wardrobe! Lace is light, airy and adds a touch of femininity. I love using lace as an accent, overlay or trim!

 Love Notions Rockford Raglan

I chose to sew up the Love Notions Rockford Raglan. For a point of reference, I sewed up a size Small, standard bust (this pattern also includes pattern PIECES for full bust), tunic length, 3/4 sleeve Love Notions Rockford Raglan. I did NOT adjust for my height (5'-0") because I wanted to wear it as a fun, casual tunic. I used rayon spandex for the body of the  Love Notions Rockford Raglan and PRINTED lace cotton lycra for the sleeves. I also added 1 1/4" stretch lace trim to the bottom hem of the tunic. Sew fun!

I really like sewing raglan style tops/dresses because they don't have set-in sleeves and I tend to find them faster to sew up. So, as a result, I've sewn up lots and lots of raglan patterns for myself and my daughter throughout the years (including  Love Notions girl's version, the Wrigley Raglan, seen here). What really stood out about the  Love Notions Rockford Raglan is the curve where the sleeves and front/back meet- it's perfectly curved to fit and flatter a woman's silhouette. I LOVE the fit and drape of the Love Notions Rockford Raglan. It's fitted at the bust and drapes nicely everywhere else.

The "lacy" sleeves of my Love Notions Rockford Raglan dress up an otherwise casual tunic and would even pass the strictest of dress codes. I could wear this tunic to work, to girl's night out, or a relaxing weekend at home- I love a multi-tasking wardrobe piece! Sew much fun joining the Love Notions Summer Lace Tour!
