I made two Jalie dolman tops!

I'm in love with this pattern. The pattern is Jalie #3352 Dolman tops. The first one I made is from an inexpensive stripped knit I bought at Fabricland.
I love how it turned out. It's a very thin knit and drapes really well. It's so comfortable. I found it easy to sew. I didn't use the neck binding piece, as it was optional. 

The second one I made, I used Art Gallery knit fabric that I bought from 
Intrepid Threads last year. This knit fabric is much thicker. But it still went together really well and feels amazing on. 

I love both of these tops. It took me less than an hour to make the second one. It's definitely my style and I will probably make a few more.

Great job on both of them! I've been doing some reading on sewing with knits, and I've started a Craftsy class, but I haven't actually tried it yet. Soon...
