Lola is back in print!

November 07, 2018

Our beloved Lola pattern is back in print and better than ever!

We've wanted to print this pattern back to the print shop for the longest time, and we're so happy that it's finally here. Lola was one of the first patterns we ever released, and it has consistently been one of our most popular patterns. It's the easiest, coziest dress to wear, all while not sacrificing on style.

Along with this, we've put together some kits for this pattern, so stay tuned at the end of this post!

We took the opportunity to make revisions to the pattern, and some of the changes you'll find are as follows:

  • Lengthened the sleeves and hemline
  • Increased the circumference of the hem band to relax the inward shape at the hem. 
  • Dropped the armhole for more comfort
  • Refined the curve on the back of the princess seam
  • Re-fit the neckline to eliminate a slight gaping at the front
  • Re-shaped the neckline, so it sits closer to the neck
  • Adjusted the fit of the pocket

If you're new to Lola, let me introduce her to you properly. 

Lola is inspired by the classic crew neck sweater, which is the ultimate cozy garment. It ties in feminine elements, giving this comfortable, classic style a sleek update. This slip-on dress features an angled waistline, with front and back princess seams, which provides soft shaping for this sweater style. The "V" detail along the neckline gives the nod to its garment muse. It also features relaxed raglan sleeves, oversized wrap-around pockets, and a ribbed neckline, hem band, and sleeve cuffs.

This style is ideal for a serger but can be sewn on a sewing machine.

Techniques involved in this dress are: 

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

We have Lola available in a printed version, PDF with copy shop options.
