The Girl's Rio Raglan Pattern!

There are few things in life as good as a really, truly great-fitting tee (except maybe a strong cup of coffee, but we digress...). That's why here at So Sew English Fabrics, we're so excited to introduce the new Girl's Rio Raglan Pattern to you!  

The Girl's Rio Raglan Pattern offers all the things that you love about the Women's Rio Raglan- a slim-to-regular fitting raglan tee with a curved hem and two neckband options, as well as three lengths. The pattern also includes three sleeve length options, and is suitable for a wide range of fabrics.

But what arguably makes this pattern so special is the expanded sizing! Oftentimes, when your young one's measurements fall beyond those of a traditional youth size chart, it can be incredibly difficult to grade or find the right fit for them. But we here at SSE believe that this shouldn't be the case! That's why the Girl's Rio Raglan Pattern has an expanded size chart of youth sizes 2-20, and is specifically designed for making fit and grading a breeze so that everyone can find the perfect fit. We truly believe that making a great fitting garment that our loved ones love to wear and feel great in is what sewing is all about!
