Julie moved to the area recently and she made a lovely A-line navy skirt (with lining!) in the fall as her first project and she tackled the Lola as her second project. Talk about cajones, this is an intermediate pattern! And she did a great job. :)
This is a purple heathered knit without much stretch. Like me, Julie used her sewing machine to construct the dress and a serger to finish the edges.
I wanted to share this with you because 1) She deserves a shout out because she diligently traced and fit and made this dress with far more quality than I would have as a beginner, no "homemade" feel to it at all, and 2) This Lola has a different shape from my own. This is what I love about sewing: we're all so unique in our body shapes and make different choices along the way.

I also saw a red version of the Lola on Sew Weekly.
In other sewing news, I've been working on a Colette Negroni for the boy—slow going (could it be that I spend all my time longing for projects to make for myself??). I've also been thinking about all my lessons from Fashion on the Ration and blogging—some personal style posts on the horizon and I promise, some sewing :)
