Lola Sewalong

I'm excited to announce that over the month of November, we'll be hosting the Lola sewalong. If you've been wanting to sew this dress, but felt like you needed a bit of help along the way, we'll be covering everything you need to know in making this dress.

Lola is available in both PDF and print formats. Make sure to grab your pattern in preparation for this sewalong.

I've posted the schedule here so that you can see the topics that we'll be covering, and the dates of their release. I hope that you'll join us in the making of this cozy dress!

This mask features a center seam that has shaping to accommodate the nose and chin. It also has two two layers of fabric, and a slot for a filter to be placed between layers.
