This is a dolman sleeve cardigan with hem bands at the sleeves and neck . I think this took me about two hours to make, from printing out the pattern to finishing the hem. And if I had a serger, it would look a lot more professional, especially on the inside…when there’s a breeze, it’s easy to see my raw edges inside the cardigan. It’s not my best work, but it was quick and easy to make as well as comfy to wear. I really need to get on the ball about making more wardrobe basics like this – they’re not as exciting to make as other garments, but I wear them a ton.
