THE WATERFALL RAGLAN IS HERE!
As exciting as release day is, this week is extra special because it marks the 1 year anniversary of Chalk and Notch and I have a great giveaway to celebrate!
More details about the giveaway at the end of the post, but now – the Waterfall Raglan.
GRAB YOUR COPY OF THE WATERFALL RAGLAN WHILE IT’S ON SALE THROUGH MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH.
UpCraft Club is THE place to find awesome digital pdf sewing patterns and I always feel lucky to have my patterns among so many great designers. You can purchase patterns individually or you can purchase a membership and receive discounts on all patterns along with other great benefits. You can check out all the membership details HERE.
The Waterfall Raglan is a relaxed fit Top and Dress with a gathered ruffle hem. The pattern is listed as: ADVANCED BEGINNER sewing level and I consider it a pretty quick sew. If you are new to knits, this is a good knit pattern to try since raglan sleeves are easy to set. To help achieve the perfect neckband, I have included 2 neckband options for each size and a knit stretch guide along with custom adjustments. There are detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions to help you along the way and if you’d like more help, the Chalk and Notch Patterns Facebook Group is a great place to get support.
The Waterfall Raglan pattern offers both a Top and Dress view with 3 sleeve lengths and an optional pocket. This pattern works as a casual everyday top, a holiday dress or anything in-between. I’ve sewn up so many Waterfalls and they all have a different vibe based on the fabric used. Currently I’m crushing hard on velvet and with the holidays approaching, I know what my girls will be wearing.
The large size range: 12 months to 12 years, along with the versatility of this pattern ensures you are going to get a lot of mileage out of this pattern.
Here are few features included in this pattern and that you can expect from Chalk and Notch patterns:
- Extended size range: 12 months to 12 years
- Computer drafted pattern pieces
- Computer illustrated detailed sewing instructions
- Layered printing option – print only the size or view you wish to sew
- US and A4 formatting options
- Print shop files formatted for US and A0 printing
- Clickable table of contents
A few recommended fabrics are: Cotton Jersey, Cotton Lycra or Spandex blends, Rayon French Terry, Rayon Jersey and as I mentioned above – my personal favorite – Stretch Velvet.

Now – for the anniversary giveaway I mentioned! One year ago, on November 9th, I released the Fishtail Kimono and launched Chalk and Notch. I can’t believe what a fun ride this has been. I’ve poured so much into this company and I’m really proud of the patterns I have released with the help of so many. In return, I have received so much more from this community: friendships, support and exciting opportunities – much more than I could have ever imagined. I am hopeful for where next year will take me and I’d love to know what you are looking for from Chalk and Notch patterns.
To celebrate I have a great prize for one of my readers. Enter the Rafflecopter to WIN:
