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 didn't buy this pattern when it first came out because I thought it was for a woven. And woven t-shirts never work for me. This pattern is for knits and your better quality fabrics can really shine with this pattern. I love the princess seams and I found it went together quickly. The band at the bottom of the shirt, gives the shirt a nice drape and you some better coverage. Be sure to use a thinner knit with a nice drape. I used my best fabrics for this and I find this pattern really showcases them. If you are looking for a nice blouse for work, I would highly suggest this pattern.
