Description

I modified the Colette Laurel Shift dress pattern and came up with this variation. I added pleats to the front for waist definition, drafted a Peter Pan collar, and added a bunch of embellishments.

    I really like the pin tucks in the front, I think that is a wonderful touch.

      Thank you!! I took a few Craftsy classes on drafting and fit and they came in handy here.
