BBW Home Stretch Raglan (with slight Flashdance mods)
Done up in three fabrics: black and chartreuse ponte knit and cream cotton/lycra.
All from Metro Textiles in the NYC Garment District.


I’m so super pleased with this! I love the bright color, the fit and the addition of another throw-on-and-go top to my wardrobe.



I’m also really pleased that I found a use for the remainder of that cream fabric. I made another Coppelia with the rest of it. MUCH more successful than the first go. I used Rachel’s faux wrap mod. I have another, slouchier, one planned.



I hope this creative streak continues. It was nice having something new to wear! That I didn’t have to buy! My knitting continues, too. I’m onto the left front of my Hetty cardigan. I want to push through to join the body tonight.

Off to ponder to some sexy sewing!! You should SEE who’s already on board!!

Get ready to get sexy!!

  1. flashdance mods. HAHA. that should totally be a thing.

    you’re gonna have to twist my arm into some separates sewing when next we meet, ’cause i’m always jealous when i come over here.

  2. Yellow just makes me happy. Looks good on you. I recently purchased the Build by Wendy Sew U Home Stretch. What size did you use for your raglan T?

    • Hello there and thanks!!

      I think this is the medium?? I’m not sure, I traced the pattern a while ago and I’m pretty sure I changed it some. I almost always need to make things longer and I did not lower the neckline as many inches as the Flashdance mods called for.
