New Pattern release from Rad Patterns!

I'm really excited to share my new sews from this month. I tested the two new dolman patterns from Rad Patterns. Ti of Sewing by Ti sponsored the fabrics used for this pattern. I was unsure of which fabrics to get but since there was a coupon code involved, I went ahead and ordered 3 fabrics just to give myself some options :-)  Yes, I went with Leopard! And stripes, of course. These are rayon spandex and have a nicer, heavier feel to them. Some of the rayon spandex I have is so light weight but these have a nice feel.

Rad Patterns: Slim Fit Dolman

I shy away from Dolman patterns because every time I have tried them, I ended up with weird wrinkle under the sleeve, or just end up looking frumpy. I trust Stephanie's patterns so just went ahead with the testing and am so happy with the results!

Rad Patterns: Loose Fit Dolman

I love the cascading effect of the sleeve and the way the hem floats away from body on the Loose Fit Dolman.


There are two patterns in this release. The leopard is Night on the Town Slim Fit Dolman and the stripe is Day at the Park Loose Fit Dolman.  Both come with various hem options, a gathered front shoulder, and a trendy cold shoulder! I could fill my closet with these! They are so quick to make and easy to wear. 

If you're wondering about the pants, they are the SOS pants from Patterns for Pirates. These pants are part of my Spring/Summer Capsule and I will be posting a status update on that soon.
