THE WOMEN’S WATERFALL RAGLAN IS HERE!
EDIT: We have updated the Waterfall & Mini Waterfall patterns. You can check out the updated pattern release post here.
I’m pretty excited to be releasing my first Women’s pattern. After the release of the Girls’ Waterfall Raglan in November I received a lot of requests for the women’s version, so I went for it. I made several during pre-testing and I reach for them all the time. They are really easy to wear dressed up or down but I always feel really comfortable and stylish at the same time. I hope it’s the same for you, that you enjoy making this pattern time after time and feel really great while wearing it.

I love partnering with UpCraft Club during my releases, they have always been so supportive and I love having my patterns in such great company on their site. If you haven’t heard, UpCraft Club is THE place to find awesome digital pdf sewing patterns. UpCraft Club is hosting a really fun online scavenger hunt starting next week. Make sure you check out all of the details on their site HERE and sign up for The Sewing Hunt, it’s FREE and you have a chance to win loads of great prizes.
Okay, back to the Women’s Waterfall Raglan…I designed this pattern to be loose through the body and balanced the oversized fit with a slim sleeve. If you prefer a more fitted bodice you can easily size down with the amount of ease that is included in the pattern.
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 party dress or anything in-between. I’ve sewn up so many Waterfalls and they all have a different vibe based on the fabric used. This pattern can also be easily modified to create different styles and even works as a maternity option! I’m looking forward to showing you some possibilities soon.
Here are few features included in this pattern and that you can expect from Chalk and Notch patterns:
- Women’s size range: 0 – 18
