My Cobalt blue version of the Ceylon dress with gold buttons. It looks much better when it hasn’t been crumpled up in my bag all day and when it has been ironed!
Gonna make another one of these as soon as I can find some plum/aubergine silk dupion.
Also really looking forward to making my Lady Grey Jacket from Colette Patterns.
EDIT* Added another pic of the dress in action at the Style Society (Oxfam Fundraiser Event)
