Upcycled Halloween Recess Raglans

Brother/Sister Halloween Raglans

I’m surprised that it has taken this long, but it’s time for matching big brother/little sister clothes! My son gets so excited when his little sister wears something that matches him or has a truck on it, so I told him I’d work on some more matching sets. I used my favorite fast and easy shirt, the Recess Raglan from See Kate Sew. I made some mock-ups before I cut into my nice fabric, so it was double the halloween fun!

My testers to adjust for sizes  in both kids – I used upcycled shirts and upcycled ribbing. That cheesy, awesome print was a gigantic turtleneck sweater, I should’ve taken a picture in it! For the size 12, I added a tiny bit to the sleeves and hem length. For the size 5 I added a bit to the sleeves and took several inches off the hem.

Then it was time for the good stuff! The ghost fabric is a JNY organic cotton knit, bought from Frollein-S and available in a blue & orange colorway as well. It just happened to go with the organic cotton interlock I got dirt cheap off a long time ago (also used in this shirt & this cardigan).

For some reason the lighting was refusing to stay consistent – it matches pretty decently, best shown in the last photo. I used my coverstitch everywhere and am loving how it turned out on the hems, but stumbled around the collar. I can’t seem to keep an even line over the seams! But I’ll take a durable, comfy stitch over perfect look any day.

How cute are they! Matching jeggings and all.  There will definitely be more matching clothes in the future!
