This is my first completed dress from Colette Pattern’s Macaron Dress. I have always admired this pattern and all of the variations I have seen of it, so I am excited to now have my own Macaron. If anyone out there is considering using this pattern, I would say go for it! The directions are well written and easy to follow, and the final product is beautiful.
My fabric selection was inspired by BurdaStyle member Sibeli’s Love Love Ikat II, and by inspired I mean to say that I was a total copycat. Sibeli’s dress has been in my favorites on BurdaStyle for quite some time.
My Macaron is made from cotton for the shell and the contrasting fabric is silk organza.
Now I just need to find an occasion to wear my new favorite dress!
cotton, silk organza, invisible side zip
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
