This is my second time making Colette’s Hazel dress, a darling little sundress pattern. This one is made up in a ditsy pink floral on a navy cotton poplin background, which I bought on a trip to London’s Goldhawk Road last summer. Instead of the prescribed slimline skirt, I added ten inches to the skirt width and gathered it into a dirndl. It’s one of my favorite pattern hacks and works so very well for this bodice.
More information and pictures can be found at my blog Idle Fancy.
