Cedar Dolman Top PDF pattern

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.

Cedar Dolman top

I have nothing but positive comments for this pattern-I have made 4 versions so far in both knits and wovens. I used a smaller ( E/F) version of the top for the knits and the G/H for woven. I also added 2” in length as I am 5’8”. I have now ordered several of Cashmerette patterns and find they are a joy to sew and the finished garments are some of my favorites. Reliable sizing-for me
14 graded to 16 -and very flattering!

A pattern that I use again and again

The Cedar Dolman was my first Cashmerette pattern but it wont be my last. I have made several versions of the top for myself and my mum. It is a simple pattern which has worked every time and I love being able to customise it to create an individual garment. The PDF pattern was simple to print and I like being able to print out various cup fittings. This is the first time I have been able to make an item using facings and it worked out perfect first go!!

Great instructions and support

This was the first garment I have sewed in over a decade because of the challenges of fit and not knowing how to do an FBA and other needing adjustments. When I came across Jenny's work and Cashmerette, I ordered three top patterns: Springfield, Montrose, and Cedar Dolman. I wasn't sure where to start, but after some very helpful information from Ayelet via e-mail, I started with the Dolman. I made it a knit. The sew-alongs also were very helpful, as was the e-mail support when I had a little trouble with the tie. I really enjoyed the process of making and wearing. Thank you, Jenny, Ayelet, and company!

Super basic pattern!

I've made the Cedar Dolman twice now. First as a wearable toile in cotton knit and once in drapey Rayon. The directions were clear and detailed. The drafting made everything go together smoothly. I enjoyed the process.
