A versatile raglan t-shirt sewing pattern to create every day casual wear. The attractively curved raglan seams paired with a relaxed crew neckline serve to create the flattering appearance of a strong chest. The sleeves are slim without clinging. The body is an average fit suitable for most figures. Choose between full length sleeves or short sleeves that end mid-bicep. The hems can be sewn using a zig-zag stitch or a twin needle.

Instructions for sewing with knits are thorough and include finishing suggestions, step-by-step illustrations and both beginner or intermediate sewing options. They explain methods for sewing the shirt with or without a serger. Fabric requirement charts are provided for a monochrome shirt or a colorblocked shirt with contrast sleeves and neckband.

 This pattern, as part of the Parkland Casual Collection, is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle.

Mens sizes XS - 4XL

Recommended Fabric
Easier : more stable knits such as thick t-shirt knits. Interlock or french terry are good examples of stable knits. Cotton blends with 6% or less spandex are generally easiest to sew.
More Challenging : very stretch or thin knits that are prone to curling at their edges. Bamboo, cotton, or hemp jersey blends, tissue-weight knits, ribbed knits, or athletic materials with large spandex content will be more challenging.

Notions : stretch or ballpoint needle, optional twin stretch or ballpoint needle
