Description

A vintage inspired dress using the Colette Patterns Peony pattern. It was a bit tricky to get the fit right on this dress but I am glad I perservered as a learnt so much about fitting my body and this dress is just so comfortable to wear. More about it on my blog.

      Thanks! It’s navy blue rick rack trim sewn underneath so the wavy bit is just peeking out.

      Thanks so much. I’m loving the blue too, the fabric made up much nicer than expected.

    This is so lovely. I particularly love the trim on the sleeves and hem. Well done!
