Description

he Colette Laurel was a very easy, simple dress to construct, perfect for work or for casual dress occasions. The main changes I made for this pattern is because it was a very loose fit. I probably could have gone down a whole size but I cut it out first, making a muslin and decided to add some long front and back pleats to bring it in.
