Yesterday I declared my love for the Union St Tee pattern from Hey June Handmade. Today, lemme tell you a little bit about my feelings for the Hey June Lane Raglan. This was the first Lane Raglan I sewed up. I made it this past winter, right after the pattern was released, using some floral sweatshirt knit from Girl Charlee. I love the Lane as a sweatshirt because it’s super cozy with a great fit that isn’t big and boxy like a lot of sweatshirts. I wore this at least weekly from the time I finished it until the weather finally decided to warm up. I have been eyeing sweatshirt fleece ever since, hoping to make at least one more for next fall/winter.
This pattern is SUCH a quick sew. The hem and arms are both banded, so there is no hemming at all. You can sew the whole thing on your serger, if you’re so inclined. I messed up on the neck of this one. It gaps a little. Still, love it.
The cute little pocket is included in the pattern. I shortened the sleeves to almost-but-not-quite cap sleeves, and didn’t do the band around the hem. Because I wasn’t doing the band, I lengthened the body of the shirt. I wish I had lengthened it just a bit more, but other than that, I’m really happy with the tee!
And those are my Lane Raglans, a pattern for all seasons. Pick it up HERE
