Hello everyone! Welcome to my humble blog home! Today, I am reviewing the Take Flight Dolman by Little Kiwis Closet. (Disclosure: I received this pattern in exchange for my honest review!) So before I show you my dolman and bombard you with my opinions of the pattern I will give you all of the particulars about it.
The Take Flight Dolman ranges from size NB to 12 years. There are 3 sleeve options (short, short with cuff and long with cuff) and three different hem options (hi-lo, curved and banded). From cutting the paper to wearing the shirt, I would estimate that this pattern took about 1 hour. Assembly was super easy and I was making two at one time.
I chose the short sleeve with cuff and the banded hem. I knew Bug would love the banded hem but she generally does not tolerate long sleeves or cuffs well so I was stepping into the unknown. I choose a reddish orange and black aztec print I scored from Girl Charlee
. I was honestly not sure about this top after I had it sewn. But as soon as my diva tried it on we were both sold. The look is so comfy and trendy and it gave her enough of a “grown up” feel while being long enough to pair with leggings and boots.
Isn’t she feeling fabulous? LOL. Admittedly, I was feeling a little jealous of my little fashionista so I had to figure something out… then the amazingly talented Lydia of Little Kiwis Closet let me in on a secret…. There will soon be a women’s version! So of course I sewed up one of those really quick and I have a new go to top! I love the oversized slouchy feel and I can also throw on a pair of leggings. And a little mommy/daughter modeling fun!
So head over and grab a copy of the Take Flight Dolman

for the women’s dolman! And let me know what you think! Thanks for reading and come back soon!
