Sew a Square Neck Knit Top with Raglan Sleeves ✄✄


Pattern Design: A semi-fitted top featuring raglan sleeves! This top is extremely versatile and you'll be making an army of them. Featuring a square neckline, this clever pattern has just 2 pattern pieces. The longer length bodice is perfect for tucking in to pants and skirts, or it's great over leggings for a bit more coverage. During construction you'll get to stitch the simple seams with the overlocker as well as use machine stitches, learn a few tips about working with knit/stretch fabrics that will change your life. 

Pattern Name: Check out the reference we based the top's name on in this clip from "Cry Baby" - click here.

Photographed Sample: Our photographed sample is made from a beautiful gold metalic knit fabric.  Look at more variations of the same pattern here on our blog.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies:  Choose a two way stretch knit.  You could use contrasting knit on the sleeves or remain with one fabric throughout.  Light to medium weight jerseys will be soft and drape beautifully.

For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.
