One of the best things about the Sewing Community is the amazing people we get to know. I’ve definitely made great friends, even never having actually met most in person, I don’t even think twice when I say they’re my friends. Gabriela from Chalk and Notch surely is one of them. She’s the kindest and I’m always excited when I get a chance to sew her patterns, adding to that I Love her style and her patterns are always perfect! ❤
This brings us to the Waterfall Raglan for women, which I may or may not forced myself into testing. hahaha You see right after making a few of the kids versions I became obsessed in making it for myself so I was thrilled when Gabriela told me she was preparing the women’s version of the pattern. Super YAY!
I tested the top and the dress versions and I love them both. This is such an easy sew you’ll want to make millions. In fact I’m planning a new one this month and I’m already eager to get started.
The pattern comes with 3 sleeve lengths, I choose 3/4 for the top and long for the dress. It works perfect in lightweight knits, although I’ve seen amazing versions in heavier knits already, so it really is versatile. Both fabrics I used on my test versions are lightweight knits from my local shop and I’m pretty happy with the results.
I wasn’t 100% sure about this retro print after buying it but I’m so happy I went through with it, I’m really pleased with how it worked on the dress.
Sorry for the blurry/weird color photos today, heheheh I really have to get a tripod and a remote someday for the sake of us all! 😀 But still I think you can see how much I love my new top and dress, I’m actually wearing the dress today, I’ll be making a summer version too for sure!
I can assure you that Gabriela’s patterns are a great buy, everything matches perfect, great step by step tutorial, all the details are thought through, and she’s always super kind if you need help.
There’s a cool link party up on Chalk and Notch where you can win a great prize so be sure to check it out (here).
You can get your Waterfall Raglan pattern here. There’s also a bundle with the kids version which I totally recommend, you can see the dress version I made for M. here. I’m not big on making mummy and me outfits but I’m not sure I’ll resist making some matching summer dresses for me and the girls. 😀
Almost forgot! Have you signed up for Upcraft Sewing Hunt yet? Amazing prizes to be won and the hint on how to find La Folie’s icon is already available. 😉 It’s so easy!!!
