Bellevue - Style Maker Jersey Knit

Straight Stitch Designs' Bellevue Top made from Style Maker Fabrics' Jersey

Oh, can I say how fabulous this fabric is?  I love this jersey knit from Style Maker Fabrics and the Bellevue pattern is a favorite for a raglan pattern.



This fabric is sold out, I am so sorry, it is so fabulous and I wanted to share it with you.  Don't worry, Michelle has a fabulous selection of stripe jersey knits at Style Maker Fabrics or take a look at all the jerseys

Now let's talk about the pattern, Straight Stitch Design's Bellevue, this is my favorite raglan knit pattern.  I like the fit, the neckline and the extra for the woven for the shirttail hem.  This raglan is a bit looser in the middle and I am great with that especially with rayon knits, no clinging.  I have made this many times for myself and daughters, take a look,

I did match the side seams and matched the underarm seams for the front- back and sleeve.  The back really looks good, the pinkish color matching in the back, since the back goes up higher.  You will have to believe me, I didn't get a photo!

This is the first time I have made the short sleeve version.  The sleeves are tight and I will change that next time, adding to the sleeves and not have them tapered as much.
