My hope was to find patterns for literally everyone. It’s nice to have options, right? So here are some ideas for babies, boys, girls, men, and women + the DIY route too.

DIY your own raglan pattern

Shameless plug for my own tutorial! The thing is that making your own raglan pattern is really easy. It took me about 20 leisurely minutes. And I misplaced my tape measure, ruler, and rotary cutter in that time. So probably less for you!

The awesome thing about DIYing this whole raglan t-shirt pattern shebang is that there’s no guessing on sizing here. First you start with a raglan t-shirt that fits you. Then you copy it. Next you bronze that pattern because you’re going to want to do 8,000,000 variations. Super easy!

    1. If by fold it over you mean just fold over the seam allowance and stitch I would not recommend it. That leads to a not nice looking finish and it’s very difficult to press a seam allowance back evenly around a neckline and you run the risk of stretching out the neckline. If by folding it over you mean fold the neck binding to the inside of the garment so that you can’t see it from the right side, yes, that’s a good option. Just follow the steps as they are for the binding, but press the binding towards the inside and topstitch the edge down from the right side either with a narrow zigzag, twin needle or a coverstitch.

  1. I definitely want to try making my own raglan since I have one that fits really well, and it would make a great ‘pattern’. This is not something I would have tried before reading your tutorial, but now it seems so possible! And I love that I can keep making them once I have my pattern. Big bonus! Thank you for sharing this with us.
