You might recognize this pattern, it’s the same one I used to make the racer-back cami (view C) shown on the bottom left.

I received this piece of fabric from Distinctive Sewing Supplies to make view B, without the pockets. It’s 60 inches wide and 95% Rayon 5% Spandex
If you want a new Tee for your wardrobe, and like the idea of a raglan sleeve, you need to make this! All the sewing was complete in an hour, and the hemming will take less than that, so it’s a “2 HOUR TEE”.
I chose to make a size that is 3 up from my body measurements. That’s my personal choice.
My suggestion is to measure the finished width of a top or two that you like the fit of and use that as a guide.
The neck binding went really smoothly, and I love the way this fabric drapes. A warning though; it’s very soft and stretchy, and my rough hands meant the fabric clung to my fingers. Hand lotion solved that problem.
My disclaimer; I received the piece of beautiful Rayon Spandex in my favourite shades of blue from Distinctive Sewing Supplies in exchange for blogging about my experience. Please know that the opinions expressed are my own.
I liked making this pattern so much that I ordered another fabric from Distinctive Sewing Supplies that I’d been lusting after. It’s a 85% Poly 10% Rayon 5% Spandex and I’ll be sewing it up using this same pattern as soon as possible. Of course I’m going to make a change, I’ll raise the front neckline by 2 inches. Watch for a review in a few weeks.
