Sewing

Remy Raglan

I've been doing some sewing this fall, but I don't think I've shown any of it here.  The first thing I made is a Remy Raglan with the short sleeves and split front option.  I've gotten a lot of wear out of it since I made it in linen which is perfect for the Texas climate.  This is the fabric I used.  This pattern is written for French seams so you don't need a serger to have a beautifully finished garment.  I do have a serger, but I love French seams so I did them anyway (also, while both methods finish the seam edges just fine, the French seams are prettier).

Remy Raglan

Then I decided to make another Remy Raglan for Thanksgiving.  This time I used the solid front (I thought it would work better with a necklace) and the new sleeve update for the puffy sleeve.  (The pattern also includes a 3/4 length sleeve with the same shape as the short sleeve.)  This is sewn in the same fabric as above in the Wild Cherry color.  Also, I forgot to give it a final pressing before I took this picture so it's hanging a little wonky.  It will be pressed by next week!

I can tell you that I will definitely be making more Remy Raglans.  It's a great shape and with two front options and three sleeve options, it's a versatile design.

Right now though, I'm working on pajamas.  I decided to make a pair of Christmas pajamas and as soon as the Thanksgiving frivolities are over and the house is put back together, I plan to wear them.  This means I better get sewing on them!  

Christmas pajamas

I decided to make the Tranquil Nightwear pajamas from Love Notions, using the long pants and the long sleeves on the top.  I ordered some fabric (I had it printed on Robert Kaufman Laguna Knit) and since this is the first time I'm making this pattern and I usually have to add length, I ordered some extra.  When I was cutting out the pattern, I realized that I would have enough left over to make a pair of short sleeved/shorts pajamas (I used the pattern I traced from some ready to wear shorts and my Lou Box Top variation, which is my tried and true summer pj's pattern) as well, which is actually useful in Texas because we're just as likely to need short sleeves in December as we are long sleeves.  So now I know that four yards of knit will give me summer and winter pajamas!
