Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations. This file was updated on 2/26/16 with a new, improved fit and pattern piece for those desiring an FBA. Learn more here.

This is a great pattern! Easy to read and understand, and even walks you through how to assemble the pattern from a PDF, if you haven’t done that and are looking for some guidance.

Excellent pattern drafting and instructions.

The Lane Raglan is frequently recommended and I can see why. It covers a wide size range – XS to 2X or 32″ to 50″ bust. It’s a great basic, but has a lot of options to make it really versatile.

Adrianna IS a genius and she has some of the best patterns. This one is no different. I wasn't too crazy about the new version of the pattern's neckline, but a quick email to her and she explained how to easily fix it! Such a good pattern.

This pattern is easy and comes with loads of options. I found it a little confusing to have multiple fit options in one pattern instead of one way to make it. It's still a great and well drafted pattern though!

Definitely a TNT pattern!

This is a great pattern to choose if you're new to sewing with knits. The instructions are very thorough. I love the fit of the Lane Raglan and I love how many options are available in the pattern. I highly recommend it!

Love this pattern! The crossover hood is my favorite! I've also sewn several short sleeved ones for the gym.

I've made at least 5 of these, I have lost count. I love this pattern although I did have to make a few adjustments. I shortened the sleeve by about 4 inches, and I am 5 foot 4 inches so, my only criticism is that I think the sleeves are a bit long, but that is an easy adjustment. This has a flattering fit, not too fitted, but just enough to give me some shape. I definitely recommend it. Also has a built in FBA, which I didn't need, but very handy as I think an FBA for a raglan would be slightly more challenging.

Great raglan tee pattern. I graded between sizes as I always have to do for my pear shape. Its such a quick make and I love the fit.

Depending on the fabric, the sizes could run a bit big. I used the ribbed jersey fabric from IndieSew, which the drape worked well for here. Very comfy shirt and it's perfect for just hanging out.

Easy to cut and easy to sew. Instructions are easy to follow.

The neckline banding was a challenge for me, following the pattern given. I ended up doing it my way, which ends up with a wider neck (almost boat-necked).

Not sure if the sizing i chose was too big for me, but the sleeves didnt fall nicely. I will make another piece with 1 size down, hopefully it'll be a better fit.

This was my first experience with using a PDF pattern and the instructions provided all I needed to know in order to successfully print, tape-up, and use my first PDF pattern.

Love this pattern, will definitely make more for my wardrobe :)

there are various steps you can take to ease up the pattern complexity (neckband and hem and cuffs is probably the easiest version, and the shirtail hem, hood and thumbhole cuff would be the most complex version). This pattern is a reasonable expense at the copy shop if you prefer to print wide format.

Great pattern with many options!

Great pattern! It's comes together easily and fits great.

The fit of the lane is so good.

Love this pattern!

This is the Large/full bust, graded out to an XL on the front piece over the tummy and hips.

Love this pattern from Hey June. Easy to put together and sew!

Easy to assemble. Don't fear the thumbholes, the instructions are perfect!

The pattern is fairly easy to follow however the neck hole is a bit bigger than I expected.

One you've got this pattern down its quick and easy. Adjusted seam allowance to 5/8 on one for a more fitted shirt.

Great pattern! Size up for sweatshirt fit or down for a T. I see many of these in my future.

My main fabric did not have much stretch so the shirt is a little hard to pull on... But all in all a very clear and easy pattern perfect for any beginner!

Once I sorted out which sizes to cut, this pattern came together like a charm. I do think it could use a little more information on sizing, though, especially through the shoulders.
