Happy Birthday Lane

The Lane Raglan* is 2 years old today and to celebrate Adrianna from Hey June is offering it for 30% off today only with code: lane.

Update, this sale has ended.

You don’t want to miss this! I’ve only recently been introduced to the Lane and I feel I need to make up for lost time. Evidenced here:

Lane Raglan-004

I’m in love with it because it’s easy, it fits me, the pattern is very well done, it’s versatile, it begs for all sorts of fabric pairing creativity and it has loads of options. She even includes a hood, thumbhole wristbands, and a chest pocket. Then if you join her Facebook group you can be inspired by many other creative and super friendly ladies who are making so many beautiful things with this pattern. Seriously there are so many talented sewers out there and the Hey June FB group is a great place to meet some of them, ask questions, make friends and get ideas.

My first 5 Lanes are just the tip of the ice berg for me. I can’t even tell you which one of these is my favorite. I can tell you that I wear these all the time and they have slowly pushed my previous ready to wear shirts out of my closet.

The pictures above and below have flat lock stitching and there is a tutorial here for achieving that look with a serger.

This is one I made for a very good friend and I paired it with the Skyline Skort from Peek-a-boo Pattern shop. I also got all the fabric from her shop too. The front bodice is AGF Whispy Daybreak, The pockets are Birch Organic Daisy Bedstorm, and then she has a wide selection of high quality cotton lycra solids at a very good price.

The fabric for these mint floral raglans was also from her shop. The print is AGF Table Flowers paired with a mint solid. The raglans my daughters are wearing are Recess Raglans by See Kate Sew available here.

The fabric for the pink and grey striped shirts is from Cali fabrics, currently available here and here. It is a lightweight jersey knit which is a little harder to work with than cotton lycra, but has a very nice drape and is super soft. I originally saw Robin Scherbatsky on How I Met Your Mother wearing a black and grey raglan like this with 1″ stripes and 1/4″ stripe accents that I knew I wanted to replicate, so when I saw this fabric I knew it was my chance.

I snagged the jade green hoodie fabric from Fabric.com on Black Friday. It is gone now, but it was a great find for me because I love the color, and I love french terry. Though it isn’t available anymore, Peek-a-boo Patterns has solid french terrys and so does Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I have purchased FT from both of them and it is excellent fabric.

So there you have it. These are my first 5 Lanes. I am not done so I’m sure there will be a sequel post. I just got some club knits from Raspberry Creek Fabrics that are begging for some raglan action. More to come!  Now don’t delay, the offer code for the Lane expires  11:59pm MST.
