Jalie 3669: the Nico MEN’S raglan!

March 23, 2017   /   byKID, MD  / Categories :  Feeds
Hey y'all! Long time no see! I've been sewing some, but mostly boring stuff and repeat patterns, but today I have a brand new release pattern, as well as a model y'all haven't seen in a while. Poor Mitch. I don't sew for him enough, but thanks to Jalie, that's changing at least a little!
This is the brand new Nico Men's Raglan (Jalie 3669). I've been on the hunt for a good men's raglan for literally years. Most of the patterns available out there are terribly drafted or are not well proportioned, but as you can see, Jalie brought their usual excellent drafting to the table, and the proportions are spot on.
There is a bit of fabric bunching under the arms, but I find that typical for a raglan style and raising the armhole would restrict movement. Mitch loves the fit, so we're happy. The length for both the torso and sleeves is just right for him.
The fit through the back is also great. The neckband is nice and flat against the back neck and the shoulder fit is good. Through the body the fit is close without being too snug.
Since this was sort of a trial run, I used random fabrics from the stash. Both pieces are soft cotton/lycra single jersey left over from other projects. I was afraid the navy would be a bit thin, but it actually worked out really well. Mitch loves the softness of the fabrics, and I do too. ;)
I am so thrilled with this pattern! Jalie wins again. Mitch is happy too, and has requested a few more of these. Since they're a quick, easy sew, he'll definitely be getting his wish! Anybody know a good place to get camo jersey?

Scattered Needlepoint Areas from the Back

Often we encounter needlepoint where all the areas of color are small and are scattered. This Rogue Needlepoint canvas is almost a poster child for this. The only areas that are a continuous single color are the words. While most of the colors are used in many places, none of the areas are large. This […]

Pattern Review: Scroop Henrietta Maria Top

Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans.  The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section.  Yep, I don’t…
