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.
Love love love this top - so easy and quick to sew. And a good basic pattern for hacking. I did make the sleeves and body a trifle longer and left off the hem facing but otherwise it fitted straight out of the packet.
