Bethioua Shirt


Indiesew Bethioua raglan shirt made from Girl Charlee knits


Hope you are not tired of quick knit shirt?  I know I am not tired of wearing them or making them.  I love my Lane Raglan from yesterday and I love the Bethioua Raglan Shirt here today
I purchased the pattern as part of the Winter Mini Collection over at Indiesew.  Here it is spring and I finally have gotten round to sewing the Bethioua Raglan Shirt
Why do I need another Raglan shirt?  Well look at the back of this one.  The yoke is wonderful but ignore my wrinkles.  They disappear in the next picture when I actually stand up straight.

There is a center back seam on the yoke and I did a good job matching the navy stripes.  I got off a bit on the lighter stripes.  

Another reason I like this top is the way you can use two great fabrics.  I went with these two fabrics from Girl Charlee

I bought a couple of yards of the navy/cream gingham but decided I only needed to use it as an accent

Two changes I am going to make next time I make this one.  Add a couple inches to the front pattern piece for sure.  The other change, I am going to pinch out a dart on the side, you see that wrinkle at the bust?  Right there, pinch that out and match it to the sleeve.  I seem to have this issue on many knit tops and I am going to see if this helps.

My big smile means another go-to, easy-to-wear knit top.

  8. I like this. Did you lay the back yoke on the bias? It looks like you did but can't tell for sure.
