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.
For this version I made View B. The other three I made are view A. You can see this on the Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lolitapatterns/

I used a rayon houndstooth for the bodice and a finely striped lycra gabardine for the bottom. All fabrics, zipper, buttons, and hook and eye are from the Houndstooth Sugar Plum kit available for sale here: http://www.lolitapatterns.com/shop/houndstooth-kit-sugar-plum/
