Apricot Dolman ~ Sew Like My Mom

Today Sew Like My Mom released the Apricot Dolman pattern!  We tested the 24m/2 size in a short sleeved top.

My husband loves the way this color brings out her eyes!

For my first version, I used a lightweight cotton/spandex (and maybe rayon?) polka dot knit from Purpleseamstress and AG knit for the bands.

I had a little puckering at the neckline but that was most likely due to the different fabrics I chose.  About half of the testers, though, were having neck issues during testing.  This was a little frustrating and took some time to solve, but Melissa persevered and came up with a great solution! The result is a great pattern!

My second make was a med-weight cotton/lycra with the same fabric for the bands.  Such an easy top!  I've been making a lot of clothing for Cici this month (because I have sooo many scraps).  

The shorts are Bonny Leggings by M4M.  The fabric is from my first attempt at leggings about 5 years ago that was an utter fail.  So glad I could put the fabric to good use! I changed the pattern so it has an elastic waist.

I added some embroidery to the neckline because this shirt needed an extra something.

The Apricot Dolman is on sale through Saturday, no code needed!
