Janet was challenged with the raglan sleeve like so many others before her it took a bit to wrap her head around the layered pattern pieces but once she could see the bodice sections it became clear which pieces were which. Even though it is a challenge it's still easier than the method I was taught in the '70s when the bodice and sleeve were drafted separately let me tell you it was very challenging to sew them together. Getting the bodice and sleeve to fit well together was not easy, fitting the body was even less so! Janet is a trooper and did not give up until she understood it and understand it she did, there will be no stopping her now!
Homework is to draft a raglan sleeve pattern using different measurements, create a mock up for the raglan using personal measurements.
See you in a couple of weeks
