Pattern #1711 Alice's Dolman Top
Alice's Top is a loose, easy fitting top, designed to be worn as an overlayer. This dolman sleeve floaty top has the hemline graduated - it is cut away from high in the front to lower in the back, designed to cover any problem areas, whilst still allowing the body to be seen.
This is a great summer layering piece. Perfect layered over a form fitting dress or skirt.
This piece is best made in a sheer chiffon to get the full floaty effect, but any lightweight main fabric could be suitable.
Make it without the lower sleeves for a shorter length sleeve summer top look, or with the lower contrast sleeves for a trans-seasonal piece. The contrast sleeves will need to be made in a stretch knit fabric or rib.
Construction instructions are included.
All seam and hem allowances are included.
The pdf is a Multi-size pattern fitting XS-5XL

Style # 1711 Difficulty: - 4 / 5
This is a professionally drafted fashion industry construction pattern, which I have made and graded to industry standard guidelines
A construction sequence is included
The main fabric is a light woven - choose a sheer or lightweight fabric such as cotton/silk blends or chiffon. Please purchase a knit fabric - jersey - that has stretch for the contrast sleeves if you wish to make them, as the garment requires this to fit properly. Medium weights are advised - such as cotton/elastane (spandex) blends or similar. A light rib may also work
This top is made for a loose, oversize fit.
The pattern is a multi-size pattern to fit the size range of XS - 5XL.
Choose your size according to the size chart - measure your bust, waist and hip and choose the size that is most close. The size guide is included in the information sheet included in the downloads when you purchase this pattern - you can see a screenshot of this page in the images here
