Again, this Levanda Shirt is worked top - down using the Raglan Technique. You already know that I’m a huge fan of top - down sweaters, blouses, tops and so on, so this couldn’t be other way.

We will first work a double brim at the beginning and to make sure that the shirt won’t fall off the shoulders, we will insert an elastic band through it.

After making the brim we will start working the yoke, then we will separate the sleeves and we will work the 3 main parts individually.At the bottom I designed this Levanda Shirt to have a shirt shape.

So the bottom is not straight and on the last few rows of the body we will make some decreases and work the front panels and the back panel separately.The sleeves are a bit larger from the yoke and we will decrease for a few rounds at the beginning, because this time I didn’t want them to be too large.

Off course, again the sleeve are 3/4, but if you want you can make them longer just by adding a few more rounds. Also if you want that your Levanda Shirt to be with shirt sleeves you can let the length resulted from the yoke part or simply make less rounds then in the pattern.
