The Dolores Batwing Pattern: On Sale Now!!!

The Dolores batwing pattern is now available to purchase! For only £7.00 you can make six different versions of this garment (just £1.16p per version!). Click here to buy the pattern, or visit the Dolores batwing pattern page for further details. Plus, don't forget to check out the Dolores Batwing Pattern Pinterest board to see other people's creations using this versatile sewing pattern.

Thank you sooooo much for your supportive comments on my post introducing the Dolores batwing pattern. I was blown away by how many of you were up for making and reviewing the pattern to help spread the word. It was tempting to send you all a copy of the pattern to make and review, but that would have defeated the object of making a sewing pattern to sell! The random number generator selected the following 18 bloggers who have each received a review copy of the Dolores batwing pattern (plus two who have yet to confirm receipt of the pattern):

Amanda from Blanca Pate
Charlotte from English Girl at Home
Cheryl from Red Knits
Coo from Betty Stitchup
Franca from Oranges & Apples
Isa from Only Lola
Jo from Jo Sews
Joy from A Charm of Magpies
Katy from Sleek Silhouette 
Lindsey from French Seam and Pipe Dreams
Lucie from Love, Lucie
Margaret from Senjiva Studio
Sandra from Flossie FT
Sara from Mixed Emotions 
Sarah from Fabric Tragic
Sue from Quilt, Sew, Sew Sue
Thea from Thea's Adventures in Sewingland
Zoe from Fozzel & Bean

I can't wait to see their versions of the pattern and read their honest reviews. If you try the pattern, puhlease send me a pic or a link to a post if you blogged about it (sozoblog (at) g mail (dot) com).

I am so excited for you - waiting for it to wing it's way to my inbox! I'm now slightly resentful that we have visitors this weekend and there'll be no sewing time at all! Best of luck with your sales x

I'm wondering, is this comfy for layering? Like you, I'm always chilli, and rocking a cardie.

Thanks again for this amazing giveaway! I'm so excited to be making it! I have still to cut into my fabric, but as far as I can tell the instructions look great!

Lovely! Excited to make it. Bought the pattern, bought the fabric...some gorgeous turquoise textured cotton knit...perfect for spring beach-time adventures!
Really pleased for you releasing a pattern and i just want to say how happy it makes me that you have made a conscious decision to use less paper in the pdf's design :) xx a tree-hugger xxx

@vanessa Thanks for asking, I find the Dolores batwing actually works well with a cardi on top. It's not a very full batwing plus the drapey type of fabric that it is best made in tends not to create very much bulk. Enjoy and please let me know how you get on!

Thanks everyone for your lovely and supportive comments

Sophie said...

I love this pattern and your fabric choices are perfect. I've got such a huge pile of WIP's, but this is certainly on my list of makes! Hopefully before winter kicks off...

Sue said...

I am so looking forward to making this top - just my style! I am away on holidays for the next 2 weeks but plan to make it asap when I get home again!
