Today I’ve got a huge comparison of these three different ponte fabrics over at CaliFabrics. Please go check it out!
Over at CaliFabrics, since it’s such an in depth discussion of the fabric, I don’t really get to share more about the pattern! This is the Camden Raglan by Hey June Patterns.
Since Annie has (once again!!!) outgrown all her long sleeve shirts from last fall and winter, she was the recipient of 3 new Camden Raglan Tees! The other two I’m perfectly happy with (and so is she!) but this one has a few flaws. Allow me to be a perfectionist and point them out to you! First of all, I sewed the neckband on backward and the seam is in the front. But Annie says she doesn’t care, so I’m not unpicking serger seams to sew it on the right way! Secondly, I only had 1 yard of fabric, (which is plenty for a Camden Raglan Tee) but I was also squeezing out a pair of leggings for baby Tina from these three fabrics. So on this one, I tried turning the sleeve on the cross grain, and they ended up being too tight for Annie from just above the elbow to the wrist. We have since solved this problem by making them short sleeved. And she has a sweater and several hoodies she can layer with it, so I guess all’s well that ends well, right?
If I had to guess, I think this is Annie’s favorite of all 3 Camden Raglan tees because I’ve seen her wearing it with and layering it under everything! It’s heavyweight ponte fabric, and so warm.
Here you can see all 3 Camden Raglan tees from the side. Annie just loves this pattern, and we’ve sewn her so many versions including several dresses!
And here is the view from the back. Once again, please head over to CaliFabrics to read all about my review of ponte fabric. And leave a comment too!
