Earn One's Stripes

Added Dec 18, 2011

by JuliaBobbin

Melbourne, Austr...






A Colette Parfait affair.

I got busy with stripes and played with the different directions. I contrasted the thin stripes with bright shiny red buttons.

There’s something nautical about this look that makes me want to go sail a boat. Almost.

I love Colette patterns so it was no surprise that I loved the result of this dress.

    This is the most beautiful version of this pattern I have ever seen. I love how you cutted the fabric to get the different angles.

    been seeing a lot of parfait’s around recentely but this is by far one of the nicest…blue and red can never be wrong in my book, nautical rules!

    Fabulous, plus the directions of the stripes are really clever. Colette Patterns are lovely aren’t they, so feminine and pretty.
