I’ve seen very few versions of the Colette Patterns Oolong dress on sewing blogs so here’s my version to make up the numbers! The entire dress is cut on the bias and because of the deep ‘V’ neck, there’s no need for any zips or buttons. The cutting out of the pattern pieces was the most time consuming element, once that’s done, it’s a very straight forward dress to sew and oh, so flattering! I shortened it quite a bit to make it look a little more 1940’s. More info and picture on my blog
