Description

Okay, so Labour Day (and the kick off of the Kiwi Summer) was three weeks ago and I didn’t finish this dress in time but it’s still summery and slightly nautical and Summer always starts late anyway!

This is my first go at Colette Patterns super popular Macaron dress. I made a 2 inch full bust adjustment and lengthened the skirt at the hips. Now I’m really excited to make another one!

(More details including the FBA on my blog if you’re interested :)

    I LOVE Colette’s patterns and you’ve made a great version, the fabric is so cute! Little vans! Perfect Kiwi Summer dress, it makes me want to go on a road trip. I have the Parfait pattern and I can’t wait to start it :)
