Pattern Review – Vintage Simplicity 7632 (a.k.a How good is a raglan sleeve!?)
I scored this vintage pattern on Etsy not so long ago and, tempting though this whole belted playsuit look is, I opted to modify
the pattern to create a top.
an invisible zip for the back closure. I used a narrow binding inside the neckline as I
didn’t want the facing to be visible through the shoulder lace. I also lengthened the sleeves a wee bit.
The sleeves are made up in Black Spider, a poly/cotton blend available in Melbourne only. And while I’m talking sleeves OH MY GOD HOW GOOD/EASY/QUICK IS SEWING A RAGLAN SLEEVE!!? As a serial mucker-upperer of the set in sleeve, I’m in love.
