Sew House Seven - The Remy Raglan Top

The Remy Raglan is a simple top with a relaxed fit that is quick to make and easy to wear. This top was originally designed to wear under the Burbside 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. Version #2 offers a little visual interest at the front with a split centre and keyhole button closure. There are two sleeve options – short sleeves and 3/4-length sleeves – and both work with either version #1 or version #2.

Level: Advanced beginner

Sizes: 0-18 (US) / 4-22 (UK)

Suggested fabrics: 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.
