Free Raglan Tee pattern


Raglan tees are a classic staple garment. They are quick and easy to sew too. I actually made these raglan tees for my daughter for back to school but we weren't able to get them photographed in time to include them in my Sewing for Kindergarten post.


Well the free pattern I promised is finally here! This free raglan tee pattern is a size 6x/7.

This pattern requires 3/4 yard of 54" wide knit fabric. Or you can mix and match your fabrics and make use of some scraps you may have laying around.
Pattern includes a 3/8" seam allowance. 
Once you print your pattern tape together as below:
I wanted to get this posted since I left you all hanging for so long. Today it is just the pattern I am posting. It is pretty explanatory how the shirt goes together, but those of you who prefer a tutorial you will have to stay tuned. I plan to put the tutorial together soon ;)


The free pattern does come with a few option though :)
The first style you see here in pink. It is a cropped length with 3/4 sleeves. This is a perfect girly style!


 The other option are for full length body and sleeves. This style is versatile enough it could be used for a girl or boy. 

The purple version I sewed up below is full length with 3/4 sleeves because, well, I just love 3/4 length sleeves. Especially this time of year. They are perfect.


Are you ready for some action! No, really, I do actually mean action. I made the mistake of letting my daughter ride her scooter during the photo shoot. I thought, "Why not? It will be cute." But trying to get a non-blurry pic or convince her to stay still long enough to get a decent photo was a consequence I should have foreseen. Oh, well, it was fun!




Caught-ya! Yes! I non-moving photo! Haha!

Well, I will take what I can get. 
I did widen the sleeves just a smidgen since these pics were taken. But I think the only reason it bothered me was because on both shirts the knit I used on the sleeves wasn't as stretchy as the knit I used for the body.


Thanks for visiting! And don't forget to stay tuned for the tutorial portion ;)
