Breaking Ground Part 2

I'm back on the Breaking Ground Blog tour that Melissa of MahlicaDesigns has put together. 

Today I'm featuring the Halla Slimfit Dolman. Yes I know, nothing ground breaking about a dolman, but the whole point of the tour is to try new designers or new techniques. I opted for a new to me designer. I love a good dolman style top, I've tried many of the different patterns out there like the Asymmetrical Drape by EYMM and the Seafarer by Sew Much Ado. This one is different and its right on trend with the dolman styles that we're seeing in stores, especially when making the long sleeve option. 

Before going any further, go join the Halla Patterns facebook group. There are a bunch of discount codes to allow you to get this pattern (and others) for free!

This pattern even if it wasn't a promotional pattern would be a great staple pattern in anyone's pattern collection and a fantastic piece to have in your wardrobe.

There's a few different options on this pattern, long or short sleeves, armbands for the short sleeves, and also different lengths to create a tunic. The size range is huge! Size 00 to size 26 are all available on this pattern and the layered printing feature is available so you print out only the sizes you need.

I think this pattern with its great fit is so worth the time and effort of printing, cutting and sewing. Go check them out, Halla Patterns!

Need some inspiration to get going on that spring wardrobe, go check out the rest of the bloggers on the Breaking Ground tour!

  1. I just tried their stardust tank and was really happy with that one too! A good dolman is definitely a very needed style.

  2. I'm a member of their group, but I haven't sewn anything up from them yet. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to it LOL!

  3. A dolman cut is my favorite. You look really pretty in the floral print too. Thank you Deb.

  4. I have never tried any of their patterns before but I love the shape of this dolman! I have trouble liking that shape on me because of my narrow frame but loving the proportions on this one! You look great in it!
