$ 22.00 - Usually

Notify Me When Available

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.

Recommended Fabric 

Light to medium weight knit fabrics with at least 20% stretch.


Easier to sew: More stable knits such as thick t-shirt knits. French terry is a good example of a stable knit. Cotton blends with 6% or less spandex content are generally easier to sew.

More challenging to sew: Very stretchy or thin knits that are prone to curling at their edges. They will still make excellent t-shirts, but will be more challenging to sew. Bamboo, cotton or hemp jersey blends, tissue-weight knits, ribbed knits, or athletic materials with a large spandex content are good examples of very stretchy or thin knits.

Color Block Design Idea: Use a contrast knit for the neck and sleeves. To do this, follow the color block fabric requirements and cutting layouts. Consider purchasing two contrasting colors of thread for hemming and topstitching. 

Materials Needed
