This is the Lola Dress from Victory Patterns. I made it a few weeks ago with some grey sweatshirting from Cloth House in Berwick Street. I’m not actually completely enamoured of it, the style is a bit odd, the upper bodice wants to be a fitted dress but below it has these enormous pockets that give it a very casual look. What I wanted was a very casual sweatshirt type dress and I am not sure this is actually it. Having said that I have worn it a lot, mainly to do housework, gardening and general slouching.
I do quite like the pockets, particularly from the back, but Hugo says they make me look like a bag lady. I think this was the look I was trying (and failing) to get
I also feel the length is a bit strange, it could do with being a tunic rather than a dress.
Have you tried this pattern? Where you happy with the results?
