Colette Macaron Dress

Added Sep 2, 2012

This is the Colette Macaron Dress made in two separate colours Red – White and Black – Grey. I love Colette patterns they are definitely a girls best friend!

If you have never bought a Colette pattern you will be amazed at the cute little package and sewing booklet that it comes with. The instructions were so simple that if I was learning again I would simply start with Colette. It was such a great sewing experience with the booklet it felt like you were creating a little story. If only all patterns and instructions were this great!

I LOVE everything about this pattern. I knew instantly seeing this pattern and how it was made that I would fall in love with this dress and want it in every colour imaginable! What can I start with, it has so many great features the two colours, small details such as the pockets being another colour, the sleeves were a really cute finish and the dress is constructed really beautifully.

Material Notes

I had a stretch Cotton for the red and white. The grey version is just a plain cotton with no stretch.
