Time for the second shirt I made from the Patterns for Pirates line.
This one is the Pumpkin Spice Dolman Shirt
The fabric is a ponte from Fabric Mart, a most perfect ponte and is just right for this pattern. I did cut the neckline on the bias to add some interest.
I wanted to add the elbow patches on this top and went to my local shoe repair shop. I was able to purchase a small scrap of leather for $2. The elbow patches are a such a nice feature on this top and I will just take special care in laundering this top.
If all fails with the washing, I will just remove the elbow patches.
I did remove some of the excess from under the arms and side seams of this garment, it was just a bit too full for me.
The folds around the bust and upper chest are just the pattern and shape of the body of the shirt.
One thing for sure is is one comfy top, it feels good and looks good. I think you can dress it up or dress it down. Do note the sleeves are tight in the forearms and wrists, so if you want more room, adjust this piece.
Some of you asked about my booties, they are from 2 years ago, a sale purchase. I found them online but all sold out. In case you are curious her is the link to the
Disclosure - I was given these two Patterns for Pirates in exchange for making the patterns and showing off the finished garments on my blog. The opinions of the garments are all mine.
