Your search for the perfect dressy-T ends here,
with these gorgeous dolman T’s. These elegant
styles are perfect for lighter weight drape-y knits
like rayon, silk, modal, or slubby linen jersey.
Loose-fit, pull-on T’s have a classic boat neckline
finished with a narrow self fabric or rib trim, plus
front and back princess seams for a superior fit.
Dolman sleeves are 3/4 length with a rib or self
fabric cuff, or add a separate section for a pieced
3/4 length sleeve. Finish your T with a double-
thickness hem band for a slouchy-waisted look,
or keep it relaxed with a separate shirt-tail hem.
These chic dolman T’s look great in solid colors
and gorgeous in your favorite prints; try them with
color or print blocking, or a little topstitching too.
Depending on your fabric choices, your T’s will
easily dress up or down for day or night; they
work best worn with flat-waist skirts or pants.
Both versions in all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 2 1/2 yards or 228 cm fabric. If you are using
a contrast rib for the neckline and cuffs, you’ll need around
1/4 yard or 23cm of ribbing.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
I loved making this top. So well drafted. All the pieces came together beautifully. The fit was spot on. The design is very fun to play with. You can make it playful using stripes in different directions, mix and match different prints, or keep it classy with all solid color. I look forward to making more HotPatterns!
