When you have a tried and true pattern there are so many ways to you can remix the pattern to be just about anything you envision. The Fauntleroy raglan pattern is definitely a tried and true pattern for me. The fit is the perfect balance of fitted yet relaxed and when it can be sewn up from fabric to finished garment in under an hour, I call that a win for any wardrobe.
I am officially the worst ever! This post was started right before I left for Tanzania and then never actually posted, which is bad on two accounts. Not only did I not share the amazingness of my Fauntleroy tester roundup but I also didn’t get the chance to make my testers feel loved and appreciated like they should. While no excuse, I did have a lot happening in those few days leading up to our trip so I can understand why it didn’t happen.
Cozy really should be my middle name. I pretty much aim to have all clothes I wear have an element of cozy, but sometimes I would like to look a bit more put together. Fauntleroy is the perfect combination of cozy and refined. With raglan sleeves and shoulder darts, Fauntleroy is a twist on your traditional turtleneck, I like to call it a relaxed turtleneck. Definitely not the turtlenecks of the 90’s.
