How to make a Dolman Top without a pattern

How to make a Dolman Top pattern (or make a dolman sleeve dress, just by extending the length!)

 

Step 1:   Get your measurements:

  • Neckline to desired sleeve length
  • Hip measurement (add 6 inches to this measurement, then divide by 4, so if her hip is 22 + 6 / 4, final # of 7)
  • Shoulder to the desired length

  1. These patterns are adorable. You definitely are using your creative spirit for good! Thank you for sharing your tips and tricks. Knit fabric is my nemesis and I ‘d like to conquer it once and for all! Right now I pick up a knit fabric, and my hands get sweaty, my heart sinks, and my mind goes blank! My husband got me a cover stitch machine and it sits in the corner laughing at me. I WILL conquer it if it’s the last thing I do! I have two new grands and they NEED me to WIN over KNITS!
