An oversized dolman top like this one is easy to sew and very comfortable to wear. The tutorial shows a hand drawn pattern to use as a guide and your own fitted tee as a pattern. To have the top oversized, I think I would use a more boxy style tee to get the flowy look of this top.

Unfortunately the author of the Blog on which this pattern is found has run into problems with the photos displacing the text and making it a challenge to read. However the diagrams provided , and the main body of instructions should be more than sufficient for the advanced beginner to make this beautiful top. I feel this is a pattern I would use again and again, with different fabrics and colors to create new looks.

This top is basically like wearing sunshine. I love how simple and breezy it looks. Perfect for summer! You will definitely stand out in it.
