This print is part of the RP Custom Fabrics – Fun Rounds pre-order. The image is of a sunset skyline in a circular format. Really pretty!

I received a few of the smaller round panels, and two that were the same size. I think they were the 12″ size. I decided to use those panels for a round sleeve on a dolman shirt, using this Pinterest pin as an inspiration.
The shirt is a pattern I have drafted, but you could do this with any dolman pattern you would have.
To make the sleeves, just measure the arm opening for the circumference of the circle. Make the circle opening the same distance. It is helpful if you have a circle cutter template tool. I generally make the circle a little smaller, as they tend to stretch out more. I did the same for the stretch lace piece, only making it a little longer.
To add more interest to this top, I did a strip in a coordinating lace in the front and back. This strip was about 4″ wide.
The main fabric here is a Calvin Klein stretch shirting fabric, that is really nice. I’m not sure this shirt is completely “Me”, but it was a fun experiment!
This pre-order is open until August 15th, so go check out the pretty panels!
