I made this dress (back in November 2013) with a blue knit I’ve had in my stash for quite some time. I paired it up with the Virginia Leggings I made in January 2014. When I got the blue fabric out I discovered it was a circular knit, which I didn’t realize when I purchased it years ago. This knit is quite thick and I wish I’d made it long sleeved. The knit fabric seamed up well on my machine with a double needle. The interior is almost seamless at the hemline and sleeves. Can you tell which two are the interior and which one is the exterior?
I omitted the pockets for a more dressed up “office attire” look. I like this version but it feels awkwardly loose in a few areas. Like the Neckline. Of course, I may have unintentionally stretched it a bit while sewing.
Update: since wearing and washing several times the fabric shrunk and is not as loose as it was.
Ill spare further details since this is my second Lola. You can see Lola in Pink here.
Recently I caught the Megan Neilson bug & sewed up the Virginia Leggings. LOVE! A very quick and easy pattern. Even the PDF pattern was a breeze to put together. I can see many of these in my future. Actually I’ve already made another but I’ll introduce them to you next time. Even though I’m only 5’3 I made them long so I could have these awesome gathers at the ankles. So no adjustments, perfect fit.
