Carlie’s Dolman Top Girls Sizes 12m to 20 Tween/Teen

posted in: EYMM Patterns, Patterns, Sewing | 1

I haven’t had a chance to post the details but I am SO excited about the release of the first girls pattern in my Craftsy Pattern Shop.  I have been talking about making .PDF patterns for years but never managed to find the time.  Recently I decided to sell my cape sewing business to my sister and finally just go for it.  Now I keep asking myself why the heck did I wait so long?

My first pattern is inspired by my twin girls & Carlie in particular.  They are 6 and while they like character stuff they really are fashionistas.  When they were too they would spend free time at preschool talking about shoes & clothes with one of their BFF’s Jocelyn.  They love a lot of the trendy styles teens and adults are wearing and I am okay with that as long as they are an age appropriate twist.  They saw and loved the dolman tops I made myself & next thing I knew I was sewing them up some and coming up with different ways to finish them.

So I present to you my first .PDF pattern…

All 4 of the above pics are my girls ;).

Carlie’s Dolman Top is a trendy top with multiple hem options and a flattering wide cut boat neck. The girls love it not only because it’s comfy but because it’s cute and fashionable. The best part is it fits, infants, toddlers, girls, tweens & teens!

This is a simple quick sew using knit fabrics. Many of my testers were new to knits and beginners with sewing garments in general, but they could sew it up in under an hour. Even if the first one wasn’t perfect they were totally wearable and their kids begged for more! Wit- in 2 tries you would have no idea they had just started sewing with knits!

I have also included great custom fit instructions so not only do you get 12 sizes in one pattern, but you also get directions to help make a custom fit top for girls needing slim and plus sizes.

It includes 4 views/ hem options:

A Hi-Lo Top
B Basic Top
C Banded Top
D Layering Crop Top

This pattern is includes a ebook file with instructions & a second file with 30 professional digitized pages that you assemble to make the full sizes pieces. (12-15 pages per view) The pattern pieces file will print in LANDSCAPE view.
