Family raglans, pegs, joggers, and new Cocoon

Patterns for Pirates patterns: Jolly Roger Raglan (kid), Baby Bear Joggers in jegging knit and black CL (cut with pattern piece perpendicular to selvedge for better stretch in this fabric). Relaxed Raglan banded tunic length with off-the-shoulder hack (only 1.5 or 2" taken off neckline, not 3 as in the blog post for the hack), capri length Peg Legs in the jegging fabric cut sideways. They are a little too loose compared to the ones cut the other direction, lol. I will have to go back and put elastic in the waistband.
Cole's Creations pattern- Jerry's raglan
This was my first time doing full length sleeves on any of these patterns and they were all a little too long for all of us, lol.
Penguin fabric is Joann Doodles cotton interlock, sleeves are all C/L from Purpleseamstress, jegging knit is from Purpleseamstress.
This time I did the elastic waistband on the joggers instead of the yoga band. Next time I'll get fancier and try the drawstring waist and pockets.

Cocoon Cardigan from Patterns for Pirates in French Terry from So Sew English. Super comfy. I wish the lower sleeves were a little less fitted so I could push them up more easily. Undecided on whether I'm going to topstitch around the band. There's a slight amount of waviness but it would probably block out with steam.
