It took me about three hours from printing to fully done on this one! Super quick sew, and personally I think it’s uber cute! Brilliant pattern!

I love how versatile this pattern is, you can make a cool summer top or a snuggly winter sweatshirt as well. It can be stylish and elegant as well as simple and comfy. I finished it in about 20 minutes, it’s so easy, gives you a proper feeling of success! The fit is spot-on if you measure correctly and very easy to adjust if needed. I never really liked the dolman style until the Driftwood came along, now it’s one of my favourites.

I’ve made a few versions of this pattern already. The short sleeve version with the tie twist at the bottom and the long sleeve version with fitted sleeves. Its amazing how using the same patter with different fabric made them look very different tops. Love it!
