Sayward Raglan

Thread Theory

$ 20.00


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.

Paper Sewing Pattern Includes: 

  1. A tissue copy of the pattern in sizes XS to 4XL
  2. An 11 page staple bound illustrated instruction booklet (lays flat while sewing!)
  3. An embroidered Thread Theory garment tag
  4. A chip board pattern folder with string closure - simple to use and sturdy enough to store your patterns for years to come
