Mommy and Daughter Dolman Top Patterns

Last week I showed you a couple of matching mom/baby tops that I made for one of my sisters and a niece, and today I get to show you a couple more!

Update: You can find the Seafarer Top Pattern (for women) HERE, and the Skipper Top Pattern (for girls) HERE!

I’m not sure who was more excited to have matching tops – Olivia or her mom, lol!

I’m lucky that they were both good sports and let me drag them around town for an evening of photos.

I’m getting super close to having the girls’ pattern (The Skipper Top) ready for testers, and have had so much fun making lots of different versions. If you thought the Seafarer was a quick sew, wait till you try the girls’ version! I haven’t gotten sick of making them yet, which is saying a lot for me :).

I found the hot pink knit at Michael Levine during Fabric Weekend, and love how soft and drapey it is. It’s a little more tedious to sew with than a heavier knit, but the end result was worth it.

As usual, there have been several changes to the pattern since I made this first top for Olivia. I’ve added length, adjusted the neckline, and made some other adjustments to find the perfect fit.

I think my favorite thing about this new pattern is the heart pocket option. I may have to add it on a top or two of my own :).

Enjoy your weekend!
