Dolman Striped Top

So you have a wide red and white stripe knit and you love the feel of the knit and want to make a top from it but......

You don't want to look like Where's Waldo!!!

Fabric information.... Style Maker Fabric's Rugby Stripe Modal Jersey Knit and it is a really good knit, soft and drapey.  The neckline binding is Style Maker Fabric's Modal Jersey

I went through my patterns and pulled a couple of possibilities.  Then I remembered a pattern I hadn't made for quite a while, Patterns for Pirate's Pumpkin Spice Dolman.  I made it here  and one other time which I didn't blog.  The first one didn't have enough stretch and the sleeves were always so tight.

This knit has great stretch so it worked perfectly for this pattern.  I did shorten the sleeves quite a bit, works better for summer.

I wanted a slouchy, comfy t-shirt for summer and this one fits the bill.  The dropped shoulders, curved hemline and deep neckline are perfect for a stylish tee and not a Waldo-esque look!

Plus this works well tucked in

Right after the spring Style Maker Fabrics' Spring Blog Tour, I ordered several fabrics.  I have decided it was time to sew all that yardage up.  Eight fabrics for eight garments.  This is the first one, started with a quick knit.  I am going to continue with three more knit projects and then the Landers are up next.

So Where's Lori?


  1. This is a cute, stylish top - no Waldo!

  2. love it! perfect for summer

  3. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
