- 2/3 yd of fabric for the body, and 2/3 yd for the sleeves. Or two thrifted t-shirts at least women’s size XL or men’s L.
This shirt is soooo easy to make – it took me about 30 minutes from start to finish once I had the pattern made.
Then, sew your sleeves to the shirt front, right sides together. The shorter edge of each sleeve corresponds to the shirt front. 1/4″ seams are allowed for in the pattern.
Next attach the shirt back to the sleeves.
Fold your shirt inside out, and sew up the underarm and side seam all as one long seam.
Use this tutorial to sew your v-neckband.
Use this tutorial to hem the shirt and sleeves with a twin needle, if desired (you could also leave the edges raw).

And then wear your new raglan and call yourself a mommy casual style icon. (Ha! I am so not a style icon.)
