TGIFF - A New Slim Fit Raglan

 Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!! It's always fun to celebrate our finishes together 😊

I had intended to share my mini version of my Burst quilt today. You can see the top here. I got the yellow and orange burst units quilted quickly, but then I decided to do flow quilting in the background. It will look amazing...but it will take way more time than I had available to have it ready for this post, lol. I guess it will be a finish for next week.

Good thing I had a backup finish I could share for today! When I cut out the pieces for the Wee Lap Tees, I also cut the pieces for another Slim Fit Raglan for me. The pattern is from Patterns for Pirates.

These fabrics are both french terry, which is nice and soft and cozy feeling. I bought them to make my Constellation pullover last year and I just barely had enough to get a raglan out of what was left over. Once a scrap lover, always a scrap lover, whether quilting or garment sewing 😊

I had to add a seam up the back because I didn't have enough length to cut both the front and back on the fold. I decided to topstitch that seam, to help it lie flat. I was hoping that I wouldn't feel the seam down my back while wearing it and I'm happy to say I don't notice it at all.

This is the neatest looking neckband I've sewn yet. It lies nice and flat when I'm wearing it, with no ripples. Yay for seeing improvements in skills!
