Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class, I am going to teach you how to make the classic raglan sleeve.
There are different raglan sleeves, today I am going to show you the classic sleeve, also known as a high raglan sleeve.
The raglan sleeve is commonly found in sportswear but can also be found in evening dresses.
In today’s class, I am going to teach you two different styles of raglan sleeves.
Both styles are designed to be worn in non-stretch fabric, the first has a small seam at the top of the shoulder.
The second style has a seam that runs to the bottom of the sleeve.
Today’s class begins by modifying the patterns of the bodice block, since this sleeve does not come out of the armhole but from the neckline.
We will also modify the neckline and create a facing so you can learn how to clean this pattern correctly.
Although, as you already know, you can finish this neckline with another type of design, such as a collar.
Then we will move on to making the raglan sleeve, we will start with the version that has a seam at the top.
We’ll end today’s class with the two-piece raglan sleeve.
As always, I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make the same sleeves that I have made.
Although it is important that you take into account the ease, both in the bodices and in the sleeve cup.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
