Raglan hoodies and French lycra terry

The Scientific Seamstress All-the-Rage Raglans

Trying out a new pattern this week from the Scientific Seamstress.
They are well constructed patterns to work through.
Lots of information that you can use if you need
and easily ignore if you don't.

There are a number of variations with respect to length, sleeve types, hood types or no hood.

Does anyone out there have a 6-7 year old boy who will sit demurely and smile at the camera?
I wonder how you get one of those.

Then the girlie one for my daughter...

That looks like a brilliant and very versatile pattern. I love the two of them. And seriously, who would want a boy who sat quietly and smile for the camera? Hope you have a great weekend.
