Carlie Dolman top, pattern by EYMM, sewn by Lulu & Celeste

Happy anniversary EYMM! Two years and 43 (paid) patterns! Wow! Today I’m showing off the Carlie* I made. I chose to make this pattern specifically because my daughter owns a RTW dolman top that suits her so well.

Carlie’s Dolman top pattern has a few different options: banded hem, hi-low hem, straight hem, or a crop top. I decided to sew the banded hem version in the 5/6 size. I didn’t do any alterations to the pattern, I figured she’d eventually have a growth spurt, so it’s a tad long on her now. She told me it was a dress, uh, it’d be ultra mini-skirt length!

This is a fairly quick sew. I like doing banded hems because they’re faster, although you do need to cut more fabric out. I should have made sure I had lined the flowers up but I messed that up. That’s ok, she doesn’t mind.

I like the boat neck too, it’s a bit wide on her but I had her try on her RTW dolman (which also has a boat neck) and it fits exactly the same, ha. It’ll be great for layering, I should try out the layering crop version next.

  1. I love the Dolman Top. I don’t have little ones anymore but I would love to make one for me. Have a great day.

  2. Perfect fabric choice for this little shirt! I’ve been looking for a dolman-type shirt since I hate to set in sleeves, especially with knit. Ick! Your daughter is quite photogenic and adorable!

  3. I love EYMM! I just bought Carlie’s Dolman top and I can’t wait to sew it up. I have Kymy’s Dilman top and it is my go to pattern.
