Buy the Men’s Sayward Raglan T-shirt sewing pattern from Thread Theory. Sayward is a versatile raglan t-shirt for everyday casual wear. The attractively curved raglan seams paired with a relaxed crew neckline create the appearance of a strong chest. The sleeves are slim without clinging. The body is an average fit suitable for most figures. Choose between full length sleeves or short sleeves that end mid-bicep. The hems can be sewn using a zig-zag stitch or a twin needle.

The instructions for sewing with knits are thorough and include finishing suggestions, step-by-step illustrations and both beginner and intermediate sewing options. They explain methods for sewing the shirt with or without a serger. Fabric requirement charts are provided for a monochrome shirt or a colour-blocked shirt with contrast sleeves and neckband.

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight knit fabrics with at least 20% stretch.

Easier to sew: More stable knits such as thick t-shirt knits. Interlock and French terry are good examples of stable knits. Cotton blends with 6% or less spandex content are generally easiest to sew.

More challenging to sew: Very stretchy or thin knits that are prone to curling at their edges. They will still make excellent t-shirts but will be more challenging to sew. Bamboo, cotton or hemp jersey blends, tissue-weight knits, ribbed knits, or athletic materials with a large spandex content are good examples.

Colour block design idea: Use a contrast knit for the neck and sleeves. Consider purchasing two coordinating colours of thread for hemming and topstitching.
