Since the material is a knit, I'd really like to put the sleeves in flat. Can this be done with a two piece raglan sleeve?

Or would I be better served to sew the side seam, sew the bottom sleeve seam, sew the curve of the underarm and sides, the. Finally sew the top of the seam.

Or is the best answer to set the sleeves in the round as burda suggests?

This is my first raglan sleeve ever, so I'm eager for suggestions. Thanks

When working with knits I usually sew the upper sleeve seam then attach the sleeve to the front and back armscye and finish with the undersleeve and side seam in one go. This is really no different to sewing the shoulder seam, then the sleeve head and underarm seam for a set in sleeve. I find it pretty hard to set a raglan sleeve neatly in the round in knits. On the whole I use Burda instructions as guidelines rather than rules (except for very tailored designs when some of their odd sounding suggestions often produce a very nice result).

So, connect the two sleeve pieces at upper arm, sew in flat matching raglan notches, connect side and lower arm in one big seam?
So I'll have a bit of the upper arm unattached, since it is really the collar?

I wish I had a kiwi sew raglan pattern. They would have nice illustrated directions.

First, a visual reminder:


Why not sew in this order?

1) Sleeve front to Bodice front
2) Sleeve back to Bodice back
3) Sleeve front to Sleeve back together at upper seam
4) Sleeve underseam+side seam together

I imagine that you attach the ruffle btw step 2 and 3 at the front bodice + sleeve pieces.

I finished it today. I'm 5'4" and should have shortened it. It is long. I made it from a ITY knit that was just a bit heavy and that does not really help the length.

FYI it benefits from the rotary cutter because edges of the ruffle, sleeves and lower edge are unfinished
