The spotlight is on our Lola blouse and dress pattern, as today she gets a glow-up with a ruffle sleeve expansion! We're very excited to share this fun little extra, so read on for all the details.
Our new ruffle sleeve is an expansion to the Lola blouse and dress pattern. It's sold separately to the Lola, and comes with its own print-out and instructions. The ruffle sleeve is a mini-download that adds extra versatility to the base pattern, and she is available today - just click here! If you don't already have the base Lola pattern, good news: We are celebrating the new ruffle sleeve with a sale. Use the code LOLALOVE to get 20% off the Lola pattern this week.
The ruffle sleeve features a shaped crown, so that it falls on the perfect angle on the arm.
If you're not familiar with the Lola pattern, she's a classic wardrobe staple that can be made up as a blouse or a dress. There are two neckline views: a boat neck and a scoop neck. And there is also a sweet feature in the back which we'll show you soon!
Lola is easy to sew, and you will learn gorgeous techniques for sheers and lightweight fabrics. And then of course, you also have the option of a delicate ruffle addition to the back yoke.
Lola is perfect for all the lightweight and sheer woven fabrics you are holding onto. Our lilac dress sample and the blush blouse sample are both lightweight viscose. Our latest sample is made up in a beautiful embellished silk mesh. The sheer fabric is an amazing showcase for those delicate sewing techniques. Check out the super-fine finish on the neckline! Our illustrated pin-hem instructions will give you gorgeous results.
Don't forget, the Lola pattern comes in three different bust sizes. Our model Sam (in sheer silk) wears hers in the medium bust fit, while Victoria wears the full bust fit.
We styled our new Lola dress with the Gemma tie belt, one of our free patterns! We also styled it sans belt, so you can compare and pick the look that's right for you.

Let's talk some more about our silk sample. Yes, we opted for both the yoke ruffle AND the ruffle sleeves, because why not?
This sheer silk is a wonderful showcase for airy, floaty details. We used French seams throughout this make for a perfectly neat finish on the inside.
