Del Mar Dolman

I recently had the opportunity to test So Sew English’s latest pattern, the Del Mar Dolman Top & Hoodie and finally get to show you my version.

Even though it’s snowing outside, I decided that I wanted something that would bring me into spring. So, I opted to make a banded, short sleeve tee with a hem band and demi mock. To “dress it up” a bit, I used a black lurex stripe that I had gotten in a bundle awhile ago…. and I love the end result. I think that this is a look that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and would work with cute jacket (or maybe even a cardigan) right now!

As for the fit, I think it was spot on. The pattern was easy to put together, but I can’t speak for the directions because at the time I made this, they hadn’t been finalized. With that said, the construction is pretty straightforward so I’d still gauge this as a good beginner pattern. If you’re interested in grabbing this pattern, it’s on sale for $3.99 through the end of the week!
