I had the opportunity to try the new Boys Ringer Raglan Sewing Pattern by Thread Faction Studio for One Thimble Magazine. We were headed on vacation, so I thought I would make Little Dude a nice beachy shirt for our trip. So, I took him to the store to pick out fabric. Little Dude, apparently, had a different idea for his beachy look.

He picked out some fun Retro Marvel Comics knit fabric from Joann Fabric, you may find it here. The fabric looks like a vintage black and white comic book. Even though it was not exactly what I had in mind for fabric, I wanted to make him happy. Baby Girl does tend to get more clothes than he does.
Currently the Boys Ringer Raglan sewing pattern by Thread Faction is only available through One Thimble Magazine. You may buy the entire magazine here full of all kinds of sewing patterns or buy the just raglan pattern here. I love the sleeve cuffs on the ringer raglan sewing pattern. They cuffs give the raglan an extra touch of design and pop of color.
The neckline of the ringer raglan sewing pattern also went on like a dream. This is not the case in all sewing patterns. I would recommend this sewing pattern for those just beginning with knits. It is also has the option of baseball tee long sleeves. The Ringer Raglan sewing pattern is not only great for boys, but perfect for girls too!
Shortness is quite common on my side of the family and Little Dude is taking after his Mama. So, I made him a size 4. The chest, arms, neck, waist, all fit him well. The only complaint I have about the shirt it is a little short for my liking. The ringer raglan I made for Little Dude looks like a good length when his arms are down, however when he lifts his arms it shows his stomach. I believe he is right at 42 inches, however I will double check when we get back from vacation. He was able to ride rides at Disney that had a required height of 42 inches. He was smack dab on the line though. (I double checked and he apparently had a growth spurt and was 44 inches tall.)
Overally, I really like the boys ringer raglan sewing pattern. I will just add more length to it next time. I think this will be a staple in his closet and will probably even make a few for Baby Girl too. 🙂 Go grab yours here! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below too!
