Lolita Patterns ~ Sugar Plum Pattern

I heard about the pattern line, Lolita Patterns, on PatternReview.  It's not a pattern company that I'd seen on a lot of blogs but I was intrigued by the line and the fact that ALL of their patterns are and will be graded up to a size 24. 

Amity contacted me about testing her new Sugar Plum pattern right before the sewing cave flooded.  I was so excited and honored to be invited to be a pattern tester for the plus size version of this dress but as you know the flood shut down everything in my sewing room. However, Suzy Bee Sews, VelosewerRhonda Buss and Latrice made awesome versions of this dress...I'm so gonna have to follow in their footsteps!

I was chatting with Amity via email and I told her that I definitely wanted to make Sugar Plum.  Hey it is the perfect work dress for me so I've just got to have one. Amity being the cool chick that she is offered to send me one free and not just one for me but one for me to give away to a lucky blog winner too.  Check out the two patterns below because it has the coolest pattern packaging! Love, love, love the bow and how you use it to close the pattern envelope!





Now this giveaway is perfectly timed because there will be a Sugar Plum sew-along at the Lolita Patterns blog starting October 27th AND even better, Leila from Three Dresses will be hosting the sew-along with Amity.  Please head on over to the Lolita Patterns blog to read Amity and Leila's good news and to get additional information on the sew-along.

I'm definitely planning on making my version of Sugar Plum right after I finish my MSN coat. If you'd like to win a copy of this pattern, please leave a comment on THIS post only by Sunday, October 13th midnight EST.  I'll pick a winner on Monday, October 14th and send it out soon after.  You will definitely have it in time, if you want to participate in the sew-along.  I will send this anywhere, hey it's a pattern so it shouldn't be that expensive to mail out, at least I hope not! *LOL* Anyway, I'll ship anywhere so leave a comment and let's make awesome Sugar Plum's together!

...as always more later!

  33. Carolyn,
    I think this will be a great pattern for you. I have been meaning to write ever since you posted the photo of yourself in the dress with belt and jacket with waist seam -- you should make more garments with waist seams! Those looked great on you. I will find the links and send them so you know which ones I mean.

  50. This is a really sweet pattern and I too love the envelope. When something looks that good on the outside what is on the inside has got to be GREAT. I love the neon version that is shown on the blog and Pinterest!!! It is wonderful that this pattern goes up to larger sizes as well. Nice to see a designer that wants to include larger woman in fashionable looks. Good Luck everyone...
