Raglan Sleeve Pattern Making Tutorial
Learn how to draft a basic raglan sleeve with our FREE digital pattern making tutorials. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to turn a basic bodice block, with a set-in sleeve, into a raglan sleeve. Creating a raglan sleeve is a fairly simple process. We slash the bodice block from neck to mid armhole and then transfer the slashed upper shoulder panels to the sleeve head. Once in place, we smooth the lines of both sleeve and bodice block to create a stylish comfortable fitting sleeve.
