Over the past few months, I tried making Jalie’s dolman top (3352) out of–you guessed it–Polartec fleece. Since I made it out of fleece, I made a few modifications:
- I made the largest size (FF) on the pattern because I wanted it to be kind of slouchy.
- I made the sleeves full length.
- I added a cowl-neck hood.
My first make was using a maroon stripe.
I liked the top so much, I made it again in black and gold–my school colors.
Then, I bought some heathered purple fleece with a sweater face, and I made it again.
And then for no good reason, I made it out of rust fleece–it’s got a tweedy face and a lighter velour reverse. It’s yummy fabric.
A couple of weeks ago my husband asked, “How many of those tops do you have?” The answer is: Four, for now.
