Lola Blouse and Dress
£11.00 – £18.00
Buy the Lola Blouse and Dress sewing pattern from Forget-me-not Patterns. Lola is a loose-fitting blouse and dress pattern with a grown-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. 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. This is the perfect pattern for sewing with sheers and lightweight fabrics, with a generously detailed set of instructions for an elegant finish.

Suggested fabrics: Lola is designed for lightweight non-stretch wovens with good drape. Suitable fabrics include lightweight chambray, voile, challis, double gauze, and lightweight crepe, through to sheers such as chiffon and georgette. For a dressy version, try silk crepe de chine, satin, or lace. This pattern is suitable for directional prints. For the ruffle view, only use fabrics with an attractive wrong side, as it may show.
Fabric requirements: Allow extra fabric for directional prints or if lengthening the pattern. Smaller sizes and the smaller bust options take up less space, so you will be able to use less fabric if the front and back pieces can fit across one width of fabric.
