Buy the Remy Raglan Top sewing pattern from Sew House Seven. The Remy Raglan is a simple top with a relaxed fit that is quick to make and easy to wear. This top was originally designed to wear under the Burnside Bibs and with the Free Range Slacks during their respective photoshoots. Many customers inquired about the top and so it became the Remy Raglan pattern.

This top was designed to have the sleeves rolled up and it should be noted the sleeves look best that way. The fit is very loose and relaxed at the bust and waist, and while it is not a cropped top, it is a short top designed to be worn with high waist pants and skirts.

The original design is version #1, plain and simple. Version #2 offers a little visual interest at the front with a split centre and keyhole button closure. There are two sleeve options - short sleeves and 3/4-length sleeves - and both work with either version #1 or version #2.

Bonus: The Remy pattern now also includes a romantic gathered sleeve! If you have an older copy of the pattern, you can download the Gathered Sleeve Expansion here for free. 

Note: Use the Cross Stitching for Garments pattern to add cross stitch embellishment to your Remy.

Suggested fabrics: Light weight woven fabrics that are not too stiff such as linen, linen/rayon or linen/viscose blends, cotton voile, silk noil, sand-washed silk and cotton gauze. Be aware that one sided prints do not work for the rolled-up sleeves. Be sure that the front and back sides of your fabric are presentable.

This top was originally designed for very light weight linen. While it can work in a variety of light weight woven fabrics, this top is the perfect, simple backdrop to let a beautiful linen shine. If you choose a more rigid fabric such as cotton lawn, the neck may appear a little smaller and the bottom hem will be a bit fuller and not drape as closely to the body.

Fabric requirements: Allow extra fabric if matching stripes, plaids or using border prints.

Spring top perfection

I’ve had my eye on this for ages and finally made it with some lovely Rachel Parker designed linen from Lamaze fabrics.

The Pattern was a delight to sew. I had to made usual adjustments for board shoulders and broad back . I was able to wiz it up very quickly. I like the split front option. I may well stitch the button loop down as I don’t need it to get the top on and off.

This time I made the long sleeved option but I love the cuffed short sleeved version too.

Remy Raglan

I absolutely love this pattern and have so far made 5 covering all versions and using, linen, cotton and double gauze. It is so comfortable to wear and feels light and breezy in the summer as there is plenty of room around the armholes.  The pattern instructions are very clear and it comes together very quickly and easily. The version in the photos is a lightweight Indian cotton from Merchant and mills and I have added pockets which aren’t in this pattern.

Linen Look Remy

Fabric: 100% cotton with a washed linen look. With the medium weight cotton, the top doesn't drape close to the body instead it stands slightly away along the hemline.

 

Pattern details: I sewed a size 12 (39in bust) based on my 39.5in bust size, taking advantage of the generous ease to cover the small difference. The top fits well and I’d make this size again in other fabrics.

The Remy Raglan is an easy and straightforward project to put together. French seams are used throughout for a nicely finished interior, the neckline is bound with self fabric, and hems are simply double folded. Even with the added time to sew French seams, the project comes together quickly.

To make the sewing process even easier and to add an interesting detail, I used a checked bias tape from my stash instead of the self fabric to finish the neckline edge.

I highly recommend the pattern as it fits very well, the instructions are professional, and the style is easy to wear.
