I feel kinda weird posting these photos because they were taken almost a year ago when we stayed at The House On The Hill last Easter (an awesome Airbnb by the way, if you are looking for something cool to stay!) My computer crashed a few weeks later and I lost pretty much everything on it – including thousands of photos that I had never backed up (sad and ridiculous!) but a handful of these pics we took turned out okay and I’m not sure why they haven’t made it to the blog yet?
The pattern is the famous Lane Raglan by Hey June Patterns. I made another one similar a month or so earlier and loved it (blogged here) so knew that adding another to the wardrobe would go down well. And it did. These Lane Raglans (plus one other I haven’t photographed yet) were my Winter staples last year. Comfy and cosy, I wore them with casual skirts, jeans, trackies – and even to bed sometimes! I like to dress up, but I REALLY like to be in my comfy clothes all day long – especially when it is cold outside.
The fabric is a french terry knit I bought online a long time ago. In hindsight I actually think it is a Marimekko knock-off, which I feel bad about, but it wasn’t until someone pointed it out months later that I realised. Anyway, it is pretty cool. The shop I bought it from isn’t around anymore so maybe they went under because of their dishonesty?!! I sewed a size medium again, (usually I would wear a small) because I wanted it to have more of a slouchy-sweater look. I do need to sew myself a size small Lane one of these days and see how I like it as a tee though.
Not really much else I can add tell you about this one…the Lane Raglan is a pattern staple for me though. One that I know I will keep coming back to again and again!
