Now the Mamas can match their littles! The adult dolman pattern comes with new options including: regular and full length cut lines, banded or hemmed short sleeves, cuffed long sleeves, and a traditional or split waistband.
This is not quite as relaxed as the children pattern so we suggest sizing up in width for a more relaxed fit. Because our bodies are all so different we also highly recommend reading through the instructions and making a muslin before cutting into your pretty fabric to make sure you have the fit how you want it!
Another important thing to note is the sleeve size. The intended finished length of the sleeve hits right at the wrist. Some testers found that they wanted more length so that the sleeve doesn’t come up when they lift their arms. Please make sure you check the finished measurements prior to making your dolman.

What kind of machine do I need to sew your patterns? A sewing machine is a must. If you are really wanting to get into making clothing though, I HIGHLY suggest getting a serger. Sergers make everything easier and cleaner. They also sew with knits a lot better than regular sewing machines!
I also own a coverstitch machine which has been a game changer. It's definitely not necessary but it is an amazing machine to have if you want your clothes to have a professional finish.
Can I sell clothes I make from your patterns? Yes, as long as you are the one sewing the clothes (you may not outsource to a manufacturer or otherwise mass produce the clothes). We love seeing our designs come to life!
Interested in outsourcing or manufacturing? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to see your work and we appreciate when you tag #lowlandkids :)
Can I share patterns I buy? No. We spend a lot of time and effort on each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you've acquired, please direct them to our website.
How Do I know what size to print? Once you download the pattern, open up the instructions and there is a sizing chart that will help you decide which size to print! If your kiddo is in between sizes you can always take the width of one size and length of another.
Can a beginner sew your patterns? Yes! We have patterns for beginners and experienced sewists alike. In the description of each pattern there will be a level of difficulty and it's up to you to decide!
Do you support Layers? YES! Each pattern has layers incorporated so you can just deselect any sizes you don't want to print!
