Description of jacket

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.

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.

    Thank you SO MUCH for this pattern! My friend asked me to copy a favorite jacket of his and I was not having much luck finding a raglan sleeve pattern. I was thinking I had to make one and then I found you! Everything looks very easy to read and I am looking forward to making the jacket!
    🙂 you just made my day!

      Took a quick look around your blog. Great stuff. Love the quirky up-cycled garments. Re-use can make everything so much better and truly original.

      I absolutely love raglans. They have a beautiful fit and enables more movement. If you want a more stylish jacket check the sleeves of the women’s pattern for raglan jackets. They are curved over the shoulder by using a shoulder tuck.
