Lane Raglan with Lace Overlay

As soon as I saw the pattern for the Lane Raglan by Hey June I knew I had to have it. I have seen so many cute ideas for this top. The bodice, sleeves, cuffs & waistband could all be different colors!

For my first version I did a grey sweatshirt fleece with an olive green lace overlay. The waistband, cuffs and neckband are an ivory cotton jersey.

Excuse the look on my face, it was raining!

I cut a size medium. but considering the sweatshirt fleece has VERY little stretch I should have made a large or extra-large. It's a little tricky to get on and off. It's important to consider your fabric choice when deciding which size to make.

I'm still so happy with how this top turned out. One of the things I love about sewing is that you have a one-of-a-kind item when you're finished!
