I have been wanting to make a Lola by Victory patterns for a while but have never been inspired by a fabric enough to make it before. That was until I bought some stretch faux leather for another make. When I saw it next to this grey ponte I knew I had to make a Lola. Leather accents are everywhere on clothes at the moment, so why not add some to a lola? Made sense to me!
I love the outcome and the dress is pretty much exactly how I expected it to turn out. I’m really happy with it. Now I have more stretch leather to play with, what to make next?? ;)
