Colette Eclair with straps

The Colette Eclair – I feel so pretty in this dress. Every time I put it on to test for fit I never wanted to take it off. RTW strapless outfits (though I did add straps here) have never looked good on me in stores. Yet, the Eclair looks great on me… it’s building up all that self confidence that RTW stuff chipped away from when I used to go clothing shopping. I’m so thankful I’ve started to learn sewing.

I wrote more in my sewing journal here:
