Here is my Hawthorn Dress by Colette Patterns. I will definitely make it again because I want to perfect the armholes to accommodate my armpit bulges and to fit the waist darts better for my small bust. I actually drafted the half-circle skirt myself instead of using the pattern pieces by using an Excel spreadsheet calculator that I found online. I added a pleat in the bodice back so I would have more room to move my shoulders and added side seam pockets. I like it!
