Hey June – Lane Raglan
To tell you the truth there isn’t much to say about this, it has a couple of options
Elbow length, 3/4 length, long, or long banded sleeves
Curved or banded hem
A separate front pattern piece with a built-in full bust adjustment (sizing guidelines are outlined in the pattern)
Needless to say I didn’t need the Full Bust Adjustment 🙂 I used the curved hem and 3/4 length sleeves, this was put together on the overlocker except for the twin needle stitching on the cuffs and hem.
The white fabric was bought from ebay the blue was a t-shirt from Primark.
Raglan sleeves are a doddle to put in, to be fair most t-shirt patterns appear to put their sleeves in flat any way but because the raglan sleeve actually incorporate the shoulders as well they are even easier to put in. Then you do the neck treatment, side seams and hemming took me about 2 hours start to finish.
The one thing I did worry about was the curved hem, but I overlocked it first which brought it in slightly and I ironed it in first. I’m very pleased with it and can see a couple more in my future.
