Added Dec 13, 2010
This dress was made by altering Colette Pattern’s Macaron dress. I kept the sweet heart yoke and scalloped sleeves, but I changed the back yoke to be buttoned down, and I changed the body of the dress to be a pleated a line shape. There are pockets in the side seams and the lining for the dress has lace on the hemline for some added pretty.
At first I worried that it would look too much like a nightgown, but now I don’t mind because it sure is comfortable to wear out and about.
