Brindille & Twig: Raglan Tee Pattern (#034)

For my friends in the US, please be sure to vote today!

After I had been sewing for a few months (mostly oneside dresses), I realized that I needed to learn how to sew knits. Babies live in stretchy knit fabric and using quilting cottons just wasn’t cutting it. I signed up for a class at a local sewing shop, Sewn Studio (which has recently closed 🙁 ) to make a knit dress.

I learned some great basics about how to use a sewing machine to sew knits. There were only two of us in the class, so I got a lot of one-on-one attention from the teacher. The pattern used in the class was from Brindille & Twig and I instantly fell in love.

Made these for my nephew and M to wear on 4th of July. The red & blue fabric is a cotton woven fabric. I used white knit for the back, sleeves, and neckband.

The B&T patterns are written in a tutorial format with photos along side each step. Since that first class just about 15 months ago, I have bought quite a few B&T patterns and they make up a lot of M’s wardrobe these days.

I do find that the Brindille & Twig patterns tend to run a little large. I always size up the neckband at least 2 sizes because M has a huge head (90+ percentile). That first dress I made for her didn’t have a sized up neckband and I couldn’t get it over her head! So I just ripped off the neckband and sewed on the bigger one.

The Raglan T-shirt has the option to make a 3/4 length sleeve or a short sleeve. I’m getting ready to make 3-4 of these for her fall wardrobe with the longer sleeve option. These pictures are some of the ones she wore throughout the summer.

The only tweak I make to this pattern is to add some extra length to the bodice. M is a tall little girl with a longer torso and extra long legs! T-shirts fit her best with a little extra length added to them.

    I am a long time follower… 🙂 I absolutely love seeing your creations. I am a sewer too, but mainly bags and blankets. I’m not sure how to cross over to clothing, but we’ll see. What equipment do you have? A serger?

      Erica – I started with sewing skirts on to onesie dresses. I took a couple classes at a local small sewing store and watched a LOT of YouTube videos. I bought my sewing machine in April of 2015. I sewed my first knit outfit that August and Hubby got me a serger last year for Christmas. I’ve been sewing mostly knits since I’m sewing for the little one and the serger has been a lifesaver! So much faster than using my sewing machine. I’m definitely still learning, but it’s been a great little hobby to pick up!

    “Gold WhatsApp” is a newer development or a niche version of the app that has emerged since my last update, I wouldn’t have information on it. It’s always a good idea to research and understand the potential risks before using any unofficial version of WhatsApp or any other app.
