Sew Grateful Week: Launch of Lolita Patterns

I am beyond excited to help support the LAUNCH of a brand new independent pattern company called Lolita Patterns!  Today in honour of the Sharing Day of Sew Grateful Week, I've got a special guest post from Amity, the co-founder of Lolita Patterns....

Hi! I’m Amity from Lolita Patterns. An exciting new pattern company started by myself, and my friend Nhi who I met through the online sewing community. We are so excited to be releasing our first pattern today to coincide with Sew Grateful week. You can get it through the shop at Lolita Patterns. It is especially meaningful to us because, were it not for the wonderful online sewing community, Nhi and I would never have met and Lolita Patterns would not exist!  Releasing our first pattern during Sew Grateful week seems like it was meant to be!

Our first pattern is called Fuchsia and is free! Fuchsia is the skirt you can wear for both work and play. This three tiered gathered skirt has a modern silhouette and flirty scallops for a sweet lolita twist. It is fully lined and has a curved waistband that flatters all figure types. Fuchsia also features an invisible side zipper to keep the beautiful line of the scallops perfectly smooth.  This versatile pattern has many variations built in with several fabric options. Sew two tiers or just one tier; add more gathers, use less gathers. It is all up to you!

Nhi has already made up several different versions for the One Pattern Many Looks contest on Pattern Review to showcase the versatility of the pattern.

With different fabrics, amount of gathers, and tiers you can get so many different looks! One of the most unique things about this pattern is the foolproof method of sewing the scallops so that they look smooth and perfect. Everything from putting the pattern together, to sizing, scallops, and variations will be covered during the sew-along, which starts February 11th. The materials and supply list can be found here for imperial, and here for metric. So grab your pattern, fabric, and supplies and meet us there!

We are extremely grateful to Debi for supporting us on our new venture and helping us get the word out. We are also sew grateful to all of you in the online sewing community that helped make this possible. We love you!

A super big congrats to Amity and Nhi on their venture and thank you so much for sharing your first pattern for free!!!  A fantastic way to kick off the Sharing Day of Sew Grateful Week!


  1. Adorable!  I belong to a Pattern Tester group that only uses patterns from independent pattern makers.  I don't think anyone there has used Lolita yet!  It would be cool to bring something new. Thanks!

  2. Gorgeous! Just heading over to have a look now.

  3. Yaaaay! Congrats again ladies :)


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
