Description of the raglan jacket’s pattern

This is the pattern for a leisure jacket of raglan type. In general, it is longer in back and shorter in front. It has a zip up front. Raglan sleeves are sewn into the back and front pieces of the pattern with seams running from side seams to collar. This creates noticeable more space for mobility over the shoulder area. Below is a basic model of a raglan jacket viewed from front and back. Wristbands in rib knit fabric or regular cuffs are options. This jacket pattern does not include lining.Basic model raglan jacket viewed from front

The women’s jacket is slightly rounded over the shoulders and thus more tight/stylish than the regular raglan type. The sleeves are sewn using two pattern pieces. There is no need to cut the sleeves in two pieces though. You can choose to cut the sleeves in one piece. How to do this you will find in the section on instructions for cutting out the pattern. The raglan jacket can, just as the suit style jacket, be sewn with a curved back. Below is an example of a raglan jacket for women with normal collar and straight back looks as well as a raglan jacket for women with higher collar and curved back looks viewed from the side.

You can choose to sew the sleeves with or without wristbands. The collar can be sewn in rib knit fabric or the same fabric as the rest of the jacket, in normal model or with a higher back. A higher back can be useful together with a curved back. Below is an example of a basic collar in rib knit ,a rib knit collar with higher back and a collar in suit fabric with higher back.
