Kitschy Coo Raglan: Slouchy and Chic

In a more stable knit, my ocelot ponte knit Trifecta Top has a very fitted look, but I wanted to see what a much more unstable knit would do in the same pattern.
So without making any fit changes, I made this one up in a slinky knit with about 150% stretch.
This version has the hem band, so it is a bit longer, and I omitted the shoulder patches. The weight of the slinky also pulls it down a little, giving it even more length.
As you can see, this is a completely different top, just with the change of fabric. In a stable ponte, the top is fitted and "dressed up" looking, but switching to a more unstable, stretchy knit, the result is a comfy, casual but still great looking top.
I love how versatile the Trifecta Top pattern is! Want a casually chic top for hanging around? Check. Want a sleek, fitted top to impress? Check. PJs? Check.

  7. The first one is an interlock (white) & jersey (red) combo. They were both more stable knits.

  8. I've so loved all of these Trifectas! I think the neckline is perfect on you and the raglan is so flattering.
