This is the perfect pattern for sewing with sheers and lightweight fabrics, with a generously detailed set of extra techniques for an elegant finish.
Lola is a loose-fitting blouse and dress pattern with a cut-on sleeve and side bust dart. The back features a yoke with an inverted box pleat. The yoke sports the option of a petite ruffle for a little bit of fun!
The silhouette of the dress is slightly A-line, skimming the hips without lots of fullness. The blouse features side splits and a shirt-style rounded hem at the back. For the dress, you can opt for the loose silhouette, or cinch in the waist with the included tie belt. There are two neckline options; a scoop neck, or a boat neck, each with their own sewing instructions. There are also optional in-seam pockets for the dress.
Lola is a low-fuss pattern, with no need for zips or closures! It also includes three different bust sizes so you can get your best fit.
Available sizes 28-48. Waist from 55cm (21 1/2") to 105cm (41 1/2") and hip from 83cm (32 1/2") to 133cm (54 1/2")
