Wonderful fast casual top, LOVE it!

This was a wonderful pattern to make. It was quick and easy to cut out and sew up, and fits like a DREAM! I'm a size 18C/D and this took me an afternoon to make. Adorable, looks like I bought it in a store!

I’ve made the Cedar Dolman in woven fabrics almost countless times. Well, not really countless: five times as a top and five times as a dress. It really works for me both as a great simple top (I cut the front on the fold instead of with a CF seam) and as a versatile base for hacking. I’ve lengthened the sleeves, added gathered long sleeves, added hem ruffles, added both separate and grown-on skirts. Before making the first one I auditioned three similar tops, and my toile of the Cedar Dolman was far and away superior to the others for my large-busted shape. Not long ago I bought the pattern again as a gift for a family member who I was helping get back into sewing.

I have not sewn anything for myself for years and decided to make this up in a printed poplin that I bought on special, thinking if it didn't work out I wouldn't have lost much. Well I love it and it has become my work top. Will definitely be making more of the Cedar Dolman top up. Thank you.
