The Women’s Waterfall Raglan!

This time I’m here to share my first make of the year, for me!

Since the release of the Waterfall Raglan pattern for girls that I’ve been (in)patiently waiting the women’s version. The ones that I’ve made for the girls have been much loved and used around here and I really like this style for myself, so as soon as it was released I had to give it a go.

The pattern is available from sizes 0 to 18 and according to my chest measurements I made a size 0, with ¾ sleeve as I intend to wear it when it get warmer. Eventually it will happen!

As usual in Gabriela’s patterns, everything matches perfectly and the instructions are clear, so this top was in fact a fast sewing and in no time, I had a lovely top. The pattern, as it happened with the girls’ version, includes two neckband options, to use depending on the fabric’s stretch.

The fabric I used is a cotton jersey with broderie anglaise that I bought some time ago from The Sweet Mercerie and unfortunately, I think it’s no longer available. I was saving it and now that I’ve used it I regret not having bought more! Typical, right?

My favourite thing of this pattern is the feminine look it has, with the comfort of a tee. The bottom ruffle is lovely! Can’t wait for better weather to wear it. Meanwhile I will be making more for sure and maybe there will be some mum/daughter matching. 😉
