Scientific Seamstress multilayer raglan

These patterns are very well put made with instructions suitable for a novice or expert. I bought the pdf e-pattern from Crafty-Mamas for our Wednesday forum sew-a-long. I even got the coverlock to play long - mostly nicely. Jeri will get to try it on when he gets home from school. 
The red fabric is a 100% combed cotton, soft and strong. The stripes are a cotton blend I picked up secondhand. I made a complete double layer so it will be nice and warm this Winter. Even on the days that Jeri doesn't feel the cold and won't wear a jumper.
The pattern has lots of option features to choose from and it is easy to make the adjustments. I will definitely try more of these patterns. They are good value too.
