Love Notions Rockford Raglan

Are you ready for another amazing pattern from Love Notions?!!  (This post contains affiliate links. Purchasing through them provides me a little kickback to keep up this lil sewing habit of mine!)  The Rockford Raglan is such a versatile top and will be a staple in your wardrobe!

There are so many fun options with this pattern that I had to keep sewing them up!  There are swingy top and tunic versions, an asymetrical overlay, and a banded option.  Add in multiple sleeve lengths and this could be the only raglan top you need.

I sewed up four different tops during testing and love them all.  The view D banded version is a great everyday basic.  This one is done in french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  It’s fun to dress up with a scarf and cozy enough for pairing with my favorite joggers for snuggling on the couch.

Double brushed poly is perfect for the view A swingy tunic option.  This pretty fabric is also from Raspberry Creek (surprise, surprise).  I’m going to need to grab some leggings to match this one.  It’ll be too cute paired with boots!

This view B top version might be my surprise favorite.  I paired these fabrics from my stash on a whim and love it so much!  These flowy versions are perfect for hiding those extra holiday pounds and look great under a cozy cardigan too.

I think raglans are the perfect blank slate to add a little vinyl fun.  This pretty white and pinecone version (also from Raspberry Creek Fabric) was just asking for a little bling.  I wanted to do something wintery that could be worn through the new year too.  My Cricut sure is getting a workout this time of year!

Which view are you going to sew up first?  It’s so hard to pick a favorite!!

I was lucky enough to get together with fellow testers Rachel from Little Fish and Anna from Kainara Stitches.  It’s so fun having sewing buddies close by and even more fun when we’re pattern testing together.

Rachel is a rockstar for braving our freezing temps in her short sleeve version!  I love seeing the various versions on our different body types.  Such a cute, flattering top!

You can grab your copy while it’s on sale here through December 19th!  Perfect pattern for a little breather between holiday sewing projects!
