How's that for a descriptive title?
After the complexity of my Minoru, I was looking for an easy project - something with near-instant gratification. I found it in Cation Design's Dolman Sleeve Top (it's free!). Paired with a yard some super soft rayon (I think?) jersey I bought at East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse for $3, I really couldn't lose.
It's the perfect weekend, lounging, travel, and Friday work top as long as I accessorize properly. I can't share much about my pattern mods because I had some printing issues - no matter what I did to my printer settings, the 4" test square kept printing as 3.5". After trying a few times, I decided to cut the large size to get something close to a small. I cut the sleeves as long as I could with the amount of fabric I had and made the sleeve cuffs about twice as tall. I attached the neck band by folding the strip of fabric in half and sewing it right sides together to the neckline, my usual method for knits.
All in all, it was quick, easy, and I'm very happy with it. Just what the sewing doctor ordered.
