Lola dress

The only bad thing about making this wonderful, wonderful dress up is the fact that I had that darn "Lola.....la la la la Looooooola!" song stuck in my head the entire time. Gah!

But never mind me and my mind worms - the full pattern review of the Lola dress, by Victory Patterns, is over at Handmaker's Factory. One thing I would like to say here, though - this is one super comfy dress, and the pattern was great! So if you are after a dress that looks great but feels as cosy as they come, then this pattern might be the girl for you!

I did make my sleeves a wee bit longer, as I prefer a long sleeve, but apart from that no other changes were made. Love those deep wrap-around pockets!

  4. Great colour on you too. Love the frizzy hair and matching glasses. Thanks for sharing the pattern. It looks like a nice wardrobe staple and would look great in other pretty fabrics.

  7. It is pretty cool. Talking about mind worms you've reminded me that I bought three Victory patterns and haven't used them.

  15. Sweet. I cut this out last year and then summer arrived so it's been lying under the bed awaiting sewing up. Thanks for the reminder. Did you have to take it in at the sides at all? Or make any other mods/alterations to the pattern?

  16. Crap-just realised I posted a comment to another review here! XP This is what comes of having too many tabs open way past bedtime. Sorry =P

  17. I just ordered this pattern. We're knee-deep in gray winter weather here in the US and this looked too cozy and chic to pass up! I'm going to lengthen my sleeves as well...although I'm not opposed to layering with a t-shirt.
