I know most of us never make enough time for a little self-care sewing but this super cute top from Seamingly Smitten leaves you no excuses! Introducing the Raglan Sleeve Split Neck Top!

While my body is still in post baby mode, I've decided that if I want to live in leggings I need a few tops to dress them up a bit.  No judging, ok? ? I know I'm not alone!! 

Here are a few pattern highlights-

  • Size range from XS-XXXL
  • Cutting lines for Petite, Regular and Tall
  • 2 necklines to chose from
  • 3 sleeve lengths

 As you can see this will accommodate almost everybody.   This goes together so quickly and with so many options, you could easily add several to your wardrobe in just a weekend. 

Now, that's my kind of pattern.  Although I would usually be a petite, I did this in the tall length to make it more a tunic length.  

I found this lovely burnout green knit in the clearance
section at Joann; I knew it would be perfect for this.  As I was trying to match something up for the sleeves, I noticed an old burnout tee in my donate pile.  Match made in heaven!  And even better I think this now cost me less than $5? Can't beat that!

I decided to change up the hem just a bit and used another
top I love as a template.  Such an easy adjustment, and it gives a whole new look.  I just laid my piece out folded and followed the curve of the top, about an inch below the edge to allow for the hem.

While I have never been much a fan of belts, just for you ladies, I gave it a try.  It does give it a more finished look, a little less of I just threw something on; which yes, I'm typically guilty of.

If you'd like more on the pattern, or want to see a few more pictures, you can check out a full review here.   

I'm off to do some fabric shopping so I can make a few more!! 

Happy sewing!
