My final incarnation of the Colette Patterns Handbook Truffle Dress! I’m not completely satisfied with the fit, sigh, but what can you. I used vintage rayon and a vintage metal zipper. I cut a size 8 and did a full-bust-adjustment, and I ended up taking in at least 2 inches on the side, but I’m still not thrilled about the fit of the bodice, oh well. But I love the skirt!
