I used the Pastille dress pattern from the Colette Patterns book to make this dress. I omitted the cap sleeves, rounded the neck, added a peter pan collar, used piping around the collar and waist, and added a dirndl skirt. I think it turned out pretty cute! Especially for my first time using piping and drafting a collar!
