Trixie is a dolman style sleeve top that has the ability to be made with either wovens, or knits! With only two pattern pieces, it is a quick sew. Trixie features three different sleeve lengths: short, 3/4 length, and long sleeve. With three finishing options, plain hem, elastic hem, and a cuff option suitable for knits, there are many options available. The shirt closes at the back with hook and loop, meaning once the knot is tied at front, it can stay tied.

Cute, fast sew pattern. Versatile for time periods, and from casual to more formal. After I made mine, I realized that an entirely different look could be achieved by using a contrast fabric for the neckline facing. Choose a lightweight, soft fabric so you can tie a nice bow.
This is a neat little pattern. It goes together very quickly with very little effort. I think it takes longer to choose the fabric as it works with both knits and wovens
