Basic Construction

Raglan patters tend to start with the front and back sleeve seams. The top starts to take shape immediately which is really satisfying.

The side and sleeve seams are sewn in one continuous seam. I love this technique, it always makes for such a nice neat finish.


Neckband

I stitch the neckband with a straight stitch as it allows the neckband to lie fatter than it would with a stretch stitch which is quite a wide stitch.

I also press the seam open so it lies as flat as possible.

When turning my neckband I find a tailors ham very useful for accurate pressing.

I carefully pin the neckband into place making sure it fits evenly around the neck edge.


Finishing

For the final step I finish the hems and stitch them in place with a twin needle for a really professional finish.

I do hope I've inspired you to have a go at sewing your own Max and Meena Mega Max top. You can get all the notions and tools you'll need from Simply Crafting.
