Waterfall Raglan Launches With UpCraft Club + Anniversary Giveaway

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.



You can find the Waterfall Raglan exclusively on UpCraft Club today and tomorrow – HERE!
On Wednesday the 9th, it will also be available in the Chalk and Notch Shop and on ETSY.

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.
waterfall-raglan-flatsHere 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.


Fun fact: I name all of my patterns after hairstyles – just for fun!

To celebrate I have a great prize for one of my readers. Enter the Rafflecopter to WIN:
– A copy of all Chalk and Notch patterns
– $25 Gift Certificate to UpCraft Club
