All information regarding Sugar Plum can be found at the sew-along page here.

Lolita Patterns | Sugar Plum Envelope Front

Sugar Plum is a gorgeous dress perfect for wearing alone or pairing with a blazer. Soft flounces cascade down the bodice and delicate buttons close the front where a hidden placket is included for modesty. The skirt and waistband are made from a stable knit for comfortable wear all day long. The unique styling makes this a perfect outfit to grab and wear without thinking about matching separates. With contrasting fabrics, your Sugar Plum can resemble a complete blouse and skirt outfit. Sugar Plum has a very fitted silhouette and the bottom of the waistband should hit at the waist. The hem is designed to rest one inch above the knee.

Here is my latest version of Sugar Plum. This time I made view B. You can see my last version by clicking here. I have a couple other versions I will debut over the next few days with fun variations. You can see a sneak peak of some of them by visiting our Flickr page.

The version I am posting here has something extra special about it. It comes in a kit! You can get your own kit with these fabrics, zipper, buttons, hook and eye, and discounted pattern to make up your own version! Grab your kit here in the shop.

I scoured forever to find the exact right prints to make a perfect Sugar Plum. You definitely cannot go wrong with black and white. The bottom part is a stretch gabardine with fine vertical stripes. The bodice is made from a rayon houndstooth print. I love the mixing and matching of prints! It looks fantastic. I made some trim out of the houndstooth and added it to the waistband and I love the effect. I used it on all my Sugar Plums!

The kit will go up for sale tomorrow. I also made a jacket that matches this Sugar Plum so I can have a suit when needed.
