In our Instagram feed, we sometimes share RTW (ready-to-wear) looks that we come across that would be easy to recreate with a Blank Slate Pattern. Here are a few recent ones:
Use the Rivage Raglan to create this cozy sweater. Alter the pattern to straighten the hemline, cropping the length to end at your high hip.
To create the trim:
Here are a few fabric options (affiliate links):
The Fairelith Raglan is the perfect starting point for this henley tee! All you have to do is curve the hemline and add the henley placket. (If you have the Texana or Shoreline patterns, you can trace the curve of either of those hemlines.) Shorten the long Fairelith sleeve to 3/4 length. And lastly, add the henley placket from this tutorial.
You could use these fabrics for it (affiliate links):
The Shoreline Boatneck already includes a hack pack with this sleeve option! Straighten the hemline, if desired. The inspiration garment uses a knit stripe and light woven for the bell ruffle, but you can use either/or for the Shoreline. This white/black stripe 100% cotton jersey looks perfect. (aff link)
