I know- it’s not Thursday but I’ve got a special little bonus post for you.
Dolmans were some of the first pdf’s I ever tried and the very first knit garments I ever sewed myself. They are just perfect for beginners.
The Seafarer Top by Sew Much Ado is so quick and easy and I have a million in my closet.
It’s a slim fitting dolman with just the right arm curve, in my opinion. There are options for bands or hems and also a pocket piece. I love to change up the band widths for different looks too.
It makes a great basic top and looks totally different depending on fabric choice.
This is my favorite and it’s done in a poly jersey knit. You can check out Ti’s full review here. I think it’s great to see it on a different body type too and hers looks awesome.
Another favorite dolman pattern is the Day Tripper Top from Shwin Designs.
I love all the options with this one- short sleeve, long sleeves, different hem lengths and curves, and POCKETS! The pockets are the best!!!
I love this cozy reverse french terry version. The pockets make it perfect paired with leggings.
I love the longer length to keep my toosh covered and comfortable.
It’s a looser fit than the Seafarer and I love the slouchiness of it. Bonus- it can be made in a woven too!
Aren’t dolmans just a thing of beauty? So quick and so cute!
I can’t leave out the fabulous Love Notions La Bella Donna (affl. link) that I reviewed here. It’s full of options too and looks great on every body. It’s got a longer dolman sleeve that creates a flattering silhouette. With tunic and regular length and multiple sleeve options, it’s a super versatile pattern to have.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a full round-up and links to see what my co-bloggers picked as their favorites too! Thanks for joining in on the super fun tour!
