The Lane 2.0

Just before I was about to cut out my second Lane Raglan, I heard rumors that there was an update coming out.  I waited a week and was able to cut out the new and improved version!  I love the new contoured shoulder and bust areas.


I used some fabric I bought of one of the Facebook destash pages.  This paisley is a soft rayon spandex blend.  The black is a bamboo spandex from my stash.  I cut out a small, but it was too big.  This is probably because rayon blends tend to have a lot of stretch and drape.  I cut the blouse apart at the seamlines and cut it out again, this time as an x-small.  I made a few changes - narrowed in the neckline a bit at the sides, because rayon grows.  I took a 1/2 inch length from the bodice and 1 inch from the sleeves.  I hemmed the sleeves and bodice with my coverstitch machine.



This time I made the curved hemline.  The rayon is not the most forgiving fabric on the body, but it's super super comfortable!  I could wear this blouse to bed it's so soft!


Ugh!  I need to go jeans shopping.  These are clearly too big...just haven't gotten around to it.  I really didn't expect to lose so much weight from getting off sugar.

  1. Great colour combination, a bit different from a basic Tee.
