Raglan T-Shirts for Hubby

I actually wasn't going to blog about these makes because getting the hubby to model these new shirts was near impossible. However, I'm so pleased with how they turned out and I'm so in love with this pattern, I decided to post anyway. I've only got one decent picture but hopefully the information below is going to be useful to someone who is looking for a raglan sleeve pattern for men.

This was the first shirt I made and the collar is definitely not perfect but hubby said it was probably the most comfortable shirt he ever wore! Yay! I was so pleased he liked it that I immediately got cutting for a second version and I nailed the collar on that one! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it so you'll have to take my word for it. :-)

The fabric I used is a super soft cotton/lycra knit from Fabricville - I purchased it in navy, white, grey and black. The fabric was really easy to sew with although it does curl at the edges a little bit. I'm not very experienced with knits and I managed to make two shirts pretty easily.

The pattern is the Rocky Mountain Raglan by Peek-a-Boo Patterns. The pattern is extremely well designed and true to size. The instructions are clear and I love that you are able to print the PDF in the size you need only. I would highly recommend this pattern if you are new to sewing knit shirts.

And hubby has already requested many more of these!

The details:


  1. Yay for a successful pattern for hubby even tho he doesn't want to be a model. haha. Looks great!

  2. How cooool! I love seeing your me-made clothing exploration and to see you venture into making shirts for your husband is just so fun! I bet it's the most comfortable shirt he's ever worn - it looks super comfy. Look forward to seeing your next me-made project :)
