                Lotta pattern

                My first adult pdf pattern. I chose this pattern as the reviews were good and it looked a fairly simple and quick make. The pattern was perfect for me easy to follow abd great results I have made 2 dresses in the past week. Highly recommended.

                Thank you Alison SEW much for writing this review. Lotta truly is a quick and easy make and you making 2 in a week is proof of it. Have lots of fun swishing around in your Lotta dresses. Team Buttons x

                Perfect!

                I bought this pattern because I have a similar dress that was giving to me and I like the fit. I am inexperienced and it seemed easy enough. I am now in love. The first dress I made was the short sleeve version with no pockets. I printed the pattern, assembled it, cut the fabric and had the dress ready to hem in 4 hours. And I even had to watch the tutorial for the understiching technique! And with kids in the house! It was so easy! Meanwhile, I already made a long sleeve top using the top of the dress and I have a second dress in my work table. For this dress I am also using the free inseam pocket pattern and tutorial from the blog. I definitely will be making the long sleeve version and my mom already asked me for a short sleeve top too. I will definitly be using this pattern a lot.

                Micaela this is so wonderful to read. Lotta is a firm Team Buttons fave so it's lovely to hear from customers who are making not just a wardrobe of Lotta's for themselves but also for family and friends. Yay to lots of Lotta love. Team Buttons x
