Patterns for Pirates Raglan Add ons and coupon code!

As if the Patterns for Pirates raglan top wasn't popular enough already, with length options, hemline options, different sleeve lengths and a bunch of optional extras, there is now also an add on pack for lots of different necklines, a kangaroo pocket and thumb holes!!


The first version I tried was a hooded version, with a cross over hood, it came together really nicely, the hood looks great and is really cosy. 

 

It's nice to have a hood with something a little bit different about it, but it's still so functional. The way it sits up round my neck keeps me really warm!


I made this version out of Ponte Roma, I went with a slightly longer length (but not the full tunic length), a banded hem and regular cuffs for this version.

Next I made the button-up funnel neck version with poppers instead of buttons. This one looks great with the poppers open or closed, and is great for the ever changeable British weather!


I used scuba knit for this version - I'd never sewn with it before, and in hindsight, it probably wasn't a flexible enough fabric for this style of neckline! Since testing, this neckline has been adjusted to take a bit of the height out, so you could get away with a fairly drapey jersey.


This one also has the optional thumb holes in the cuffs, which I LOVE - they keep my hands really warm!!


All the options included in the pattern are: a traditional hood, cross-over funnel hood, cowl neck, funnel collar, ruched funnel collar, button up funnel collar, kangaroo pocket and thumb hole cuffs!

You can buy the Add on Pack alone if you already own the P4P Women's Raglan, or you can get them bundled together! (**The add on pattern does not include the shirt**)
Both are on sale $2 off through Sunday Feb 1st.

Craftsy is already marked down - get them here :- Add on and Shirt

With these two patterns you can make yourself a whole wardrobe of new tops in so many different styles, and the instructions are really clear and easy to follow - what are you waiting for!!!
