Raglan Sleeve

Raglan Sleeve
Usually when people think of the raglan sleeve, they think of a baseball shirt but really raglan sleeves are popping up all over.  The raglan sleeve is really a flattering look regardless if it’s a contrasting color or the same color as the bodice.  It’s unique look is due to the top of the sleeve going over the shoulder and being a part of the front and back bodice.  This sleeve is actually easier to sew in than a traditional inset sleeve, but the top will need to be finished with the rest of the neckline.  Since mine was a sweatshirt, I used a knit band to finish my neckline.  See our demonstration to learn how to sew the raglan sleeve today!

    Where did you get the knit gray fabric with the scissors, sewing machine and thread motif at? I love it!

      My in-laws picked it up for me on one of their trips to Europe. I think they said they got it at the fabric store in Switzerland.

Starting in 2009, the Professor Pincushion team had a vision of creating a sewing tutorial website in which beginners could learn and master the art of sewing. Our site launched in March of 2010 and we have since produced over a hundred sewing related tutorials that cover everything from sewing basics to fun and original projects. Regardless of the subject, we always strive to create HD quality videos that takes the viewer step by step through each process so that nothing is left out and the mystery behind learning to sew is revealed to all.
