Raglans are comfortable, casual, and cool for boys and girls alike. This simple style can be made in a range of bodice and sleeve lengths so that you can get just the look you want for any season. Adorable raglan tops, pullovers, and gowns are a great use for soft knits and cozy fleeces. Raglans are perfect for embellishing with applique, machine embroidery, and even iron-ons.
If you have never worked with knits before, this is the perfect style to start with! This eBook is loaded with tips and tricks for handling and sewing knits. Detailed illustrations and photographs take you through each step of garment construction. Also included are instructions for making mock layered sleeves and "reconstructed" raglans. With patterns from sizes 6 months through 10 years (fitted styles up to 12 years), you can make righteous raglans for tots to tweens! All you need are the right notions, a basic sewing machine with straight and zig-zag stitches, and soft, comfy knit fabric. As always, patterns are included to make tiny raglans for 15"-18" dolls.
"Hoods" by Scientific Seamstress
Top off your raglan with a stylish hood! Attached in place of the neckband, the hood is a fun and easy way to add flair and warmth to your creation. Use lightweight knits for year-round wear, and snuggly fleeces for the colder months. You can even use T-shirts to make reconstructed "hoodies!"
