Word of the Day: Raglan Sleeve

Raglan Sleeve-A raglan sleeve is often used when making items of clothing such as sweatshirts, certain types of jerseys and other sportswear. The construction is different from that of typical shirt sleeves, because the raglan sleeve has a seam that goes from the underarm straight to the neckline. A raglan sleeve is only one piece, instead of several pieces sewn together and attached to the shell of the garment. This style makes shirts easy to move around in and very comfortable. There is no shoulder seam in a garment with a raglan sleeve.
