Pattern Description: Women's Dolman Sleeve Knit Top in 4 Styles
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Somewhat
Were the instructions easy to follow?Very very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like that I didn't have to do much fitting to make this pattern look good. I did do some adjustments for my petite size.
Fabric Used:Cotton Jersey Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I decided to make the neck hole smaller so I took off quite a few inches. Next time I am going to add an inch or two back in. I also shortened the sleeves because I have short arms, but then I ran into a problem where you can see in the armholes. I have to wear a tank underneath, but I still love it. I also cut it to where the bottom band stripes went in the same direction as the rest of the shirt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Absolutely. The ruched waistband hides my belly nicely. I am already planning on making this style again and trying a nice sleeveless version like in view D.
Conclusion: Love this top. I can see why it made Best Pattern of 2011.
