Mishlei (Proverbs) 31:22,24

כב מַרְבַדִּים עָשְׂתָה-לָּהּ שֵׁשׁ וְאַרְגָּמָן לְבוּשָׁהּ
כד סָדִין עָשְׂתָה וַתִּמְכֹּר
She made for herself pleasant-looking bed covers; she also made herself white (linen) and purple garments to wear
She manufactured robes and sold them

Raglan-style Yoke Blouse

Raglan style sleeves
The Raglan style is actually not a simple style to create, as  it requires joining the sleeves onto the front and back bodices, and there is not supposed to be a shoulder seam.  The sleeves and the triangular part appear to be one smooth piece.  It is challenging for me, to say, the least.

Therefore, I kind of faked this style, by creating a triangular yoke from the shoulder to the front bodice, cut them out and then re-attach them. In this style, I do have a shoulder seam and the sleeves are attached at the arm hole as usual.

So, here is my attempt at a "raglan-style" yoke blouse, thanks to SureFit Design's Children's Patterns Kit that enables me to create a master pattern for my child. (I can't thank you enough, Glenda!)

Training Girls in Dressmaking

In our times, it is highly commendable to train girls in the art of dressmaking and general sewing. Lessons should be given on this subject in schools, and if necessary, also in seminaries.

If the girl becomes really expert, she will even be able to make garments for herself, and later on, when married also for her daughters. Also, she could take up dressmaking as a profession.
