Petite Stitchery Blog tour: Layne Dolman

Another blog tour! This time for myself, the women’s Layne Dolman by Petite Stitchery*. It is a dolman sweater with a high-low hem. It is an easy sew and looks so nice with the high-low hem.

I sewed the Lulu Dolman in sweat fabric. Unintentionally I had to hack the sweater a bit. I was stubborn when picking out my fabric, I loved the red color of the sweat fabric in my stash. The pattern suggested more stretch and I ignored that and ended up with too tight sleeves. Therefore, I decided to add a piece of fabric between the front and back pieces.

I made a Medium and graded to a Small for my chest, it is a perfect fit. Due to my height I also shortened the sweater with one inch. I would not change anything next time!

I used the same fabric for the cuffs, the extra fabric and the neck binding. It is called Bulbs from the Playtime collection from See You At Six fabric. Lovely isn’t it? Again it was a leftover from our sewing weekend. This piece of fabric was leftover from Davina from Woohoo by Davina. After a t-shirt, just a small piece was left. Just the perfect pieces for the small pieces for the neck binding and extra fabric on the sleeves. Because I wanted to show the light bulbs I used a different method of binding than described in the pattern. I just sewed the binding with my serger to the inside and topstitched it with my coverlock.
