RuLo pattern hack – dolman top with narrow arms

Of course, I had to make a hack of this pattern right away.  Not that there aren’t a ton of options, but I wanted to copy a sweater that I already owned.  It is pretty close to this pattern, only with narrow arms.  I also wanted a bit more booty coverage.

Base pattern: RuLo top by George + Ginger, dolman option


  • Added a narrow sleeve instead of the bell sleeve
  • Added 5″ to the back hem, and 1″ to the front hem

Sleeve piece:

This was a pretty simple and easy hack.

I probably didn’t need quite as much added to the back, so I might shave a few inches off on the next one.  I hadn’t made it yet, so I was just estimating with a measuring tape.

The fabrics are a stretch faux leather scuba I got off Amazon and the boucle knit is from Joann’s.  I have a feeling I will be wearing this a ton!
