Hello sewing friends! It’s time again for another pattern review. I just got done testing this top for Greenstyle and it released today! You can get it HERE at a special release price, but only for a few days- so don’t hesitate.
The Studio to Street top is a top with dolman sleeves. It has a few different neckline options, as well as different sleeve and hem length options. And it really is a fast sew! I say that a lot I know, but you can get a crew neck style done in 1-1.5 hours, cut to finish. The v-necks do take a little longer, but are so worth the time!
I know there are a lot of dolman patterns out there, but I think this one has a unique style and stands apart from what else is out there. Plus, you can never have too many patterns! 😉
At first I wasn’t sold on the top, as I am used to wearing form-fitting tops and anytime I have tried to wear something more flowy in the past, I felt it made me look larger than I was. But after about the third STS I made and seeing the other tester’s versions, I was sold on the style. It is so comfortable and can be dressed up or down. And Greenstyle patterns are always well drafted and have very thorough instructions. It’s one of the reasons why it’s my favorite!
Now for my favorite part- showing you what I made!
This top is pictured above as well, and is a crew back with V-front. I also joined the band at the sides, rather than doing a split band hem. I used a double brushed poly fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics for this one!
I loooove stripes and couldn’t resist using them for at least one of these tops. This is the crew back and crew front version with the split band hem. It is sooo cozy and warm in this baby French Terry fabric from So Sew English.
And that’s all she wrote! I mean literally, all I’m going to write about it.
Until next time, happy sewing!
