An amazing thing has happened, it's Saturday and I'm back with a sleeve post!!! Hopefully it's a sign that I'm finally getting back on track.
The sleeve I'm sharing today is a
Square Shoulder Raglan Sleeve
Once you have drafted the raglan sleeve, this project will go very quickly.
Begin with the raglan sleeve draft.
To determine the angle of the lines, draw a straight line across the sleeve. Measure down on either side 1 1/2". Connect the angled line back to the straight line.
Cut on the slash lines and spread 2".
Notice that the seam line does not go to the side seam of the sleeve.
The red lines represent the shortened darts. On the front of the sleeve, the dart will end approximately 2 1/2" from the raglan seam, and on the back, the dart will end approximately 1" from the raglan seam. I say approximately because the slope of the top of the arm is different from one person to another. So try the garment on and adjust the fit of the dart.
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
