    This is the best version of a Collette pattern I’ve ever seen! Inspired fabric combo. Did you have to alter it the pattern much? Also do you have a blog somewhere?

      Thanks :-) I love this fabric too! It’s a while ago that I made this, but I think the sizing was quite ‘generous’. I used size 36 and I remember I had to take it in a lot around the waist. I may also have taken a bit of volume out of the skirt.
      I don’t blog :-)

    I would like to spread this dress on toast and have it for breakfast! Delicious!

    wow this is the first one I’ve seen where the top of the bodice doesn’t pucker. what’s your secret?

    I loove your version of the Macaron pattern- I really want to try it! Did you omit the pleats in the skirt to get a more slim-fitting skirt?

      Thanks :-) I think I kept the pleats, but I took it in on the sides a little so that it would have less of an A-line shape.
