Girls’ Waterfall Raglan

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 7 customer ratings
(7 customer reviews)


The Waterfall Raglan is a relaxed knit top or dress with a gathered ruffle hem. There are three sleeve options: short, 3/4 and long sleeve, along with a small pocket option. I considered this pattern a pretty quick sew. This is a good knit pattern to try if you are new to knits since raglan sleeves are easy to set. I have included 2 neckband options for each size and a knit stretch guide to help achieve the perfect neckband fit. There are detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions to help you along the way, so come try!

Size Range: 12 months to 12 years


The Waterfall Raglan pattern offers two views.

    Love this pattern. I already made 5 tops and working on dresses. Easy to follow instructions even for a newbie like me. Because of the simple, yet elegant silhouette of this top/dress, I can create uniquely different-looking clothes with different fabric. Highly recommended, especially for someone who is not used to swing with knits.

    A beautiful pattern with clear illustrations and excellent, easy-to-follow instructions. A perfect pattern for those starting to sew knits, and great for anyone learning to sew.

    I LOOOVE this pattern. It has become my go-to dress and top pattern because it is a quick sew with great, stylish results. In the last 3 weeks I’ve made 2 dresses and 2 tops and have more planned!
