Some Waterfall Love

I have a favourite new pattern. This is the Waterfall Raglan from Chalk and Notch and it is seriously one of the most flattering tops I've ever made. I think I've worn it every week since I made it and it's even leggings appropriate since it covers my entire bum!

I chose to use a gorgeous charcoal bamboo french terry for this top that I've been saving for something special. I love the soft buttery feel of bamboo french terry for winter tops and trust me, it's officially Winter here in Alberta. As I write this today we are sitting in +3 (celcius) temperatures, but the day I took my indoor photos it was -30 with the windchill. Part of the reason that I wanted to make a solid top was to pair it with some of my fun print leggings. It also pairs really nice with skinny jeans and boots.

The pattern was released on Monday through UpCraft Club for a 48 hour exclusive and releases today through the Chalk and Notch site and on Etsy.

The Waterfall Raglan is the first ladies pattern for Chalk and Notch and it does not disappoint! My 3 year old loved it so much, I had to buy the girls pattern and make her a matching one. I used the same bamboo french terry for the body but used a bright print on the sleeves and neckband using a strikeoff from Black Rabbit Fabrics. Lucky for you there is a pattern bundle of the Ladies and Girls Waterfall Raglan so you to can make some matching outfits!

Now that Gabriela has ventured into Ladies patterns, maybe she'll think about doing a Ladies version of the Fishtail Kimono!
