Description

I finished this dress some time ago to wear it on my boyfriend´s grandpa´s 90th birthday. Just had no time till now to upload some photos.
This dress is based on a really wonderful instructed pattern by Colette called Rooibos. I also included the optional piping, which was the hardest part on this project, actually. I guess piping is not so difficult at all, but I wanted it to be dotted and had to remove it several times, because the dots could not be seen. But I think that in the end it was worth it. :)

    So pretty!! I really like your little added details in the dotted piping (and dragonfly brooch), they make it all the more unique. Think I too may need to buy this pattern & give it a go.

    Nice dress and nice dot-piping : ) I wasn’t sure if something made from the colette patterns would look good on me, but now I think I should finally get one!
