It’s here! The sharing part of Sew Grateful Week! We have an extra special treat for you today….Lolita Patterns first pattern! Fuchsia is the skirt you can wear for both work and play. This three tiered gathered skirt has a modern silhouette and flirty scallops for a sweet lolita twist. It is fully lined and has a curved waistband that flatters all figure types. Fuchsia also features an invisible side zipper to keep the beautiful line of the scallops perfectly smooth. This versatile pattern has many variations built in with several fabric options. Sew two tiers or just one tier; add more gathers, use less gathers. It is all up to you!
Many of you have already seen Nhi’s versions as entered in Pattern Review’s One Pattern Many Looks Contest. Mine will be debuted this weekend as well as a couple other versions you have not seen yet. This is all gearing up to a Fuchsia Sew-Along that starts on February 11th. Go ahead and grab your badge in the sidebar.
Our first release is 100% free and will only be released in PDF version. Future patterns will be released in hard copy and will also be released in pdf if the demand is there. So let us know! You can get the Fuchsia right now in the shop. Just a couple notes in case you decide to go ahead and start before the sew-along. On the pattern, the dotted line for the scallops is a STITCHING line–not a cutting line. The cutting lines are essentially long rectangles. If you are not sure, just wait and join us in the Sew-Along and ask questions and post pictures to the Fuchsia Flickr Group as we go along. Anyone can make this skirt and we are here to help!
