Philadelphia, Pe...






This is made from Colette’s Peony pattern with Amy Butler fabric.

I made a muslin for this dress which i think was very helpful. I had to make a small bust adjustment which included removing the side darts. I think when i make this dress again i will pull in the boat neck, it’s a bit too wide. I would like to try this dress again with a softer and flowing fabric.

I also added a lining. I need more practice with slippery lining fabrics.

    Beautiful shape. I think the fabric you used was key in keeping the structure. Lovely print too. :-)
