Cedar Dolman Top
Bought this pattern as wanted to learn how to make my own clothes. Pattern was explained thoroughly and easy to follow, would definitely recommend. Will be making more of these tops .
This is a brilliant pattern. I am only sewing 7 months and it was the first pattern that fitted me perfectly. The instructions are so easy to follow I have made 5 already and I have "hacked" it into a dress. My family gave me the best compliment of all that the tops "look shop bought" . The Cedar Dolman has become my tried and tested pattern of choice, I am looking forward to trying more changes to sleeves and necklines to further fill my wardrobe with these versatile makes.
I made one Cedar for myself to make sure I knew what i was doing, then a wearable muslin for my difficult to fit sister-in-law. Still waiting for her comments but I am overjoyed with the outcome of my first Cashmerette top!
This is a great fit and easy to hack if you want to make it a dress or add pockets.
Very satisfying to make.
This is only the 2nd pattern (and item sewn), I am a complete novice and challenged myself with a jersey fabric and the Concorde top for my first so thought I’d start with a woven to improve skills. This is such an easy pattern to sew and the instructions are really clear, even I managed to complete in a morning. Really pleased with my finished top, it doesn’t look homemade, I was able to easily grade the pattern between sizes with a different size bust, waist and hip.
Love Cashmerette, have ordered more patterns for when I’m feeling confident to tackle and have also pre-ordered the book.
Highly recommend, give it a go.
