Lola in sizes 14-30 is here

February 16, 2022

We're thrilled to announce that our beloved Lola pattern is now available in our extended size range. Lola was one of the first patterns released in our collection, and to this day, it's still a favorite among our customers. We're thrilled to offer this pattern in more inclusive sizing.

Lola Sweater Dress by Victory Patterns

Inspired by the classic crew neck sweater, Lola is a super cozy garment that ties in feminine elements, giving this comfortable wardrobe essential a sleek update. This slip-on dress features softly curved seams throughout, adding interest and shape to this sweater style. It also features relaxed raglan sleeves, oversized wrap-around pockets, ribbed neckline, hem band, and sleeve cuffs.

Lola is available in two size ranges: 2-16 and 14-30 in PDF format. This new size range offers the same details and comfort as the original pattern. We've added some updates by drafting for a D-cup and adding a few inches to the hem.

Techniques involved in this dress are: 

  • Sewing with stretch fabric
  • Raglan sleeves
  • Princess seams
  • Attaching ribbing 


    Lola is ideal for a serger but can be sewn on a sewing machine. We've created an in-depth sewalong that will guide you through sewing this project with stretch fabric on both a sewing machine and a serger. If you need some extra help in the construction of this garment, be sure to check out this sewalong series.

    Lola is 20% off from now until February 23rd, midnight EST. No code is needed at the checkout.
    We love seeing what you're making, so don't forget to tag your new Lola creation with #victorylola or #sewwithvictory and @victorypatterns when sharing on social media. Happy Sewing!
