Dolman Sleeve Top - MariaDenmark Olivia Oversize Top

MariaDenmark  105-Olivia

Made two tops from Maria Denmark's pdf Dolman sleeve pattern.

Pattern:  MariaDenmark 105-Olivia

Fabric: rayon/polyester mix light knit

Alterations: shortened sleeve 2"; shortened body 2".  The bottom band was too big, so wrapped fabric snugly around waist/hip area and used that as the band length.  Neckline was too low, so raised it about 2".

Conclusion:   A very comfortable loose top.
