Introducing the Lottie Dress & Top
I am so thrilled to be releasing a new pattern! Welcome the Lottie Dress & Top! This pattern has many variations; with three sleeve options, and three length choices, it’s like getting three patterns in one! You can mix and match the elements for 18 different combinations.
The Lottie Dress & Top are loose fitting wardrobe staples that pull over the head without the need for closures, making it a great project for a new sewer, or a fast sew for someone more experienced.
View A, the Lottie Top, has short dolman sleeves, patch pockets, a split side seam vent, and hits just above the hip.
View B, the Lottie Dress, has short dolman sleeves with an add-on to lengthen the sleeves to 3/4-length, patch pockets, and lands just above the knee.
View C, the Lottie Maxi, is sleeveless, cinches in at the waist with a skinny belt, ends at the ankle, and has side seam vents that open to the knee.
These are the combinations I chose to use as my base starting point to give you three different and unique looks. However, you can mix and match a total of 18 different combinations! As you see in the diagram, there are a lot of choices! Use the maxi length and the 3/4-length sleeves, and add pockets – Or make a really simple shell using the sleeveless option paired with the shirt length – Or my favorite right now is just the dress length with short sleeves and pockets! With a change in fabric, you could easily have a whole closet full of these variations for a whole collection of unique pieces.
Huge thank you to those that have already bought the Lottie Pattern, and I hope you all love it as much as I do! Oh, and don't forget to use the #lottiepattern hashtag so we can all see your creations. Thanks!
