Pattern Description:

Kymy's Dolman Top & Tunic is a simple quick sew using knit fabrics. It's trendy with its multiple hem options and a flattering wide cut boat neck. Not only is it comfy but it's fashionable and easy to make. Size up or size down for a different fit & style.

This is a simple quick sew using knit fabrics. Even most of my testers who were new to knits and beginners with sewing garments in general, 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 10 sizes in one pattern, but you also get directions to help make a perfect fit top whether you are petite, tall, slim, plus size or even pregnant! View D works well as a maternity top if made in the same or one size larger than your regular size as long as your fabric has good (50%+) stretch. The View E was a last minute addition, but it makes for a great comfy tunic that is very fashionable with or without a belted waist. Make sure to read the directions BEFORE printing off all the pages.

It includes 5 views/ hem options:
A Hi-Lo Top
B Basic Top
C Banded Top
D Ruched Sides & Maternity
E Tunic

This pattern is includes a ebook file with 14 pages of instructions, photos & diagrams. It also includes 66 professionally digitized pages in the same file & page print guide that you assemble to make the full sizes pieces (18-24 pages per view). This is a file updated 2.14 to include our no trim print and assembly format.

Excellent Kymy's Dolman Top, View B, Size XS  August 24, 2013


This pattern came with clear instructions, and the top was very quick to construct. I was a little worried about the fit because I am on the petite side, but I was very pleasantly surprised - the XS fit very well and was very figure-flattering! I made two versions of View B: one with finished hems (as detailed in the pattern) and one with unfinished hems. They are both very cute tops that I will enjoy dressing up to go out or dressing down to wear around the house. I highly recommend this ...

Good Dolman Top in D  August 23, 2013


The shirt was very easy to sew. I had some trouble with the elastic on the side. I accidentally sewed it into the 'front' piece instead of waiting until I sewed them together. But once I figured out what I did wrong, it was an easy fix. The next time I make this shirt, it shouldnt take any time at all. I am very impressed at how easy and nice this shirt was to sew!

Putting the pattern together can get a little hard for people with OCD, like me. I couldnt quite get the pieces to fit ...

Excellent Quick, easy peasy project!  August 22, 2013


This is the kind of project I love, love, love. Assembling the pattern takes a little bit of time, but Kymy makes it easy with her stars and dotted lines to help you match everything up. Once assembled I was able to knock out this top in less than an hour! I'll def be making several of these tops in all the different views.

Good Cute top  August 22, 2013


Last time I sewed with knits was 25 years ago, so I am very much a beginner. This was more difficult for me than most, I suppose, but I will be making more. I am very short waisted so this top ended up being huge on me even though I selected large on the top & XL on the bottom. I wanted it snug across the shoulders & loose in the belly. It ended up being way too long for my liking & still too loose in the shoulders. I will make adjustments & make one in black next. :)

Excellent Love this Top!!!  August 21, 2013


This top comes together so quickly! I have already made two and plan on more. I also cannot wait to make the maternity version the next time I am pregnant!

Good Kymy's dolman top  August 21, 2013


This is a quick sew, although a total beginner might have a little difficulty with the neckline hem. My advise, make sure you iron hems as per instructions, and go slow :)

My body shape is weird, so I ended up using one size for the neckline and tapering to a larger size in the waist and again in the hips.

Excellent great pattern for tall ladies  August 21, 2013


I thought this was a great, easy, and quick pattern to sew. The instructions were easy to follow, and the finished product is very flattering to wear. I am tall, and a lot of patterns are too short for me, This top fits great, and I didn't even have to add length (even though instructions to do so are included). Highly recommend this pattern!

Excellent Kymy's Dolman Top  August 20, 2013


I love this pattern! It sews up so quickly and is a great alternative to your basic t-shirt. It looks more dressy, but is just as comfortable.

Excellent Awesome top!  August 20, 2013


Made one of these for my teen daughter and can't wait to make one for myself! It came out sooooo cute! Great fit for any body type, and a super quick sew! Love it!

Excellent A great versatile top!  August 18, 2013


I love how quick this pattern sews up. A chose option C, with a modified neck width (for more modesty) in size small. In total it took under and hour to print, assemble and sew. I will be adding more versions to my wardrobe :)

Excellent Easy sew with a great fit!  August 17, 2013


I absolutely LOVE this top! I have 4 kids age 6 and under and my body just isnt in that good of shape. I have a hard time finding close that are comfortable AND cute/stylish. This fits great and is so comfortable!!!! The pattern is easy to follow even for a beginner.

Excellent Easiest Shirt Ever!!  August 17, 2013


I absolutely lived every second of making this shirt. Not only is it fast and easy, but it's only 2 pieces!!!
The fit is spot on and the look can be casual to dressy.
I plan on making several of these shirts for work and can wait.
I highly recommend this pattern to all sewers from beginners to advanced.

Excellent Fabulous quick sew  August 16, 2013


This top is going to become a staple in my wardrobe. It's a quick sew, plus it flatters so many body types - the top is comfortable, yet creates a more "pulled together" look than a t-shirt!

Excellent Dynamite Dolman Top  August 15, 2013


I LOVE this shirt. It looks great on and I got so many compliments the first time I wore it. The pattern was super simple to assemble and the directions were very easy to follow. It didn't take long to make and I have plans for many more in the future.

Excellent Great top for all sizes  August 15, 2013


This top is awesome! Very easy even if you are a beginner using knits. There are lots of great tips about using knits if you are unfamiliar with them. It is great to have a top that fits plus sizes as well. This was a super fast sew and one I will definitely make again and again.
