Carey Top - a Dolman Sleeve Beauty!

Carey Top with Pleasing Dolman Sleeves

Not all Dolman Sleeve Tops are created equal! If not Drafted Well, a Dolman Sleeve Pattern can end up looking overly Baggy and Unflattering!

That said, check out the Carey Top by Itch to Stitch.  It's a Real Winner!!

The Sleeves of the Carey Top are stylish and flattering without extra bagginess.
The Shoulder Panel adds a pop of interest with it's Contrasting Fabric.
The Drawstrings create more Visual Interest and a lovely Gathered Effect.
The High-Low Shirttail Hem is the final stylish element that brings everything together!

Carey Top is a Quick and Easy Sew.  In a couple of hours you will have a Comfy and Stylish Top!  And it can be made in either Woven or Knit fabric.

Change up the Length and go from a Tunic, which also makes a Terrific Swim Coverup, to a regular Top Length like the one in the Photos.  It was shortened by 2 inches.  Or make it Dress Length.  Add a great belt and it Rocks!

So Comfy!!

 I also chose to Highlight the Neck Binding by placing it on the Outside.

Carey Top is a great option for when you want a bit of Sun Protection!  It is lightweight and breezy yet covers the shoulders and arms well.
