Dolmania: phase 3: the dress

One thing I really love about the Dolman Top pattern is how versatile it is. I decided to put it to the test, and made it into a fun dress.

I used the Dolman Top pattern as my base and added a slightly gathered skirt and some elastic at the waist for shaping.
Myra loves it! It's perfect for playtime, but still nice enough to wear wherever she goes.
Apparently, the boys like it too, I'm not sure I'm ready for that...
If you'd like to make your own, hop over to Kitschy Coo for the full tutorial. You'll be glad you did!


  1. super cute! i love patterns for girls where you can just tack on a skirt. :)

  2. Love the Dolman as a dress!

  3. I love the happy fabric! And she looks like one happy little girl to be wearing it :-)

  4. Adorable! Great fabric! I love it when you find a pattern that works for everything - boys and girls, tops and dresses!

  5. That is the funniest picture - she's sitting so lady-like! It looks like something from the Saturday Evening Post, seriously.
