This is my first make of the Sugar Plum dress from Lolita Patterns.
I used a wool knit for the skirt and a peach oriental style fabric for the bodice. I changed the sleeves by removing a lot of the excess ease at the sleeve head and at the back of the sleeve hem. I also changed the collar from a ruffle to a stand collar. I omitted the top button. I lined the skirt as well as the bodice and waistband as I need to be able to wear my clothes with tights.
I highly recommend this pattern. It provides a bit of a challenge to the more experienced sewer. The little button loops for example and the modesty shield behind it. Such cute details as well.
