Such an exciting post today! I love getting to be part of the creation process with pattern designers. Today I’m sharing about a new pattern release from Chalk and Notch as well as celebrating the Chalk and Notch patterns one year anniversary. Excitement is floating around everywhere with the Waterfall Raglan release and the awesome giveaway is going on is amazing too. Be sure to read to the bottom to enter the raffle copter. Your are going to want to have some entries into this one.
To help celebrate some lovely blogger people are joining in with a little tour. Check out the schedule! I’ve become blogging sisters with so many of these ladies. It is so fun to support each other through our little adventures. I love seeing how we all have different takes on patterns and fabric. It’s amazing how one pattern can look so different in every make.

Do you know Gabriela from Chalk and Notch? I’ve “known” her for a little over a year when she participated in a contest that I too joined in on. I can remember her amazing collection and photos. I loved the colors, the makes, the accessories that went with the collection. I could tell she had it together. I continued to follow her on Instagram and later discovered she was designing. It’s so fun to see the development of someone’s dream and business and I’ve enjoyed watching Chalk and Notch grow throughout the year.
If you aren’t a member of the Chalk and Notch Facebook group, you must join! You can see all the upcoming patterns and tester calls. The group is full of such sweet ladies. It’s a positive encouraging place. Join here.
Now for the Waterfall Raglan Release!
I’ve been sharing my photos all around because I just love this top and I have to say, my little model was working our photo shoot. There were too many cute ones to narrow it down.
The Waterfall Raglan is a relaxed fitting raglan with both top and dress views. It features a feminine ruffle at the hemline. There are multiple sleeve lengths and my very favorite thing about this pattern is the larger hem allowance on the sleeves. I have found that larger seam allowances with knits makes for smooth washing, non-curling hems. This is something I love!

The Waterfall Raglan pairs great with jeans or leggings. It’s a great everyday top, but can be dressed up easily with some good fabric choice.
The dress version is just as adorable. I haven’t made it yet, but you will see some on this tour, so don’t miss those stops.
I’ll leave you here With the rafflecopter. Be sure to enter and check out the rest of the stops on the tour.
