ITS a Visby Henley Raglan

Visby is the newest pattern at Itch-to-Stitch. But wait…is it a Henley, a raglan, a hooded t-shirt, or a city to find the best meatballs in the world? Well, how about all of the above! There are three views but so many options that you could sew a different Visby for every day of the week. It’s a great pattern for color blocking too. The testers came up with some really great combinations, some of which I want to try! I made view B to check fit, doing my usual alterations of grading between sizes and shortening. This top is a long style so I took 2″ off each of the two lengthen/shorten lines in the body, 1″ off the length of the sleeves, and 1″ off the cuff. I need to try it with 2″ off the sleeves and none off the cuff to see how I like that way. Both fabrics are t-shirt jersey with the solid pink having a lot less stretch to it than the stripes. Worn here with my black Liana Jeans.

View B fit on the first try so I went on to do the same alterations for View A. The solid aqua blue is a heavier jersey with stretch but not a lot of recovery so I chose a coordinate for the neckband and cuffs. I love this gorgeous swirled color brushed poly!

Visby  is on sale and goes great with the Sequoias, so pick that one up too if you haven’t already! There’s a sew along for them in the Itch to Stitch group.
