Yardage Charts

The metric version of the envelope back can be found here.

Finished Garment Measurements

These measurements represent the total finished measurements of the garment–not your body! To calculate how much design each the pattern has, look at the measurements which correspond to yours on the sizing chart, then find the matching size on this finished garment measurement chart and subtract the two. That resulting number represents the amount of design ease in each part of the garment. This is helpful in deciding which size garment to make. If you do not know how much ease you like in your garment, measure a comparable article of clothing in your closet that you feel fits you well. You want to sew up this pattern in the finished garment measurements that most closely resemble the favored item of clothing from your garment. This will ensure that you like how tight or loose the finished garment is. Also, please keep in mind that Lolita Patterns are developed with much less ease than most patterns. This results in a close fitting, tailored look. We include the finished garment measurements to aid you in your decision of which size to cut and sew.

Cutting Labels

You can download or print a copy of the cutting labels for Sugar Plum here. Cutting labels help ensure that you can identify each piece (or stack of pieces) as you need it, know which side is the right side, and which side of the piece is the top and which is the bottom. Since there are so many pieces, and many are shaped similarly, this helps avoid confusion as you sew.
