My first go at the Colette Peony. Unlike many other people, I didn’t have any trouble with the fit on this pattern. I just shortened the side darts on the bodice slightly, as I have done on other Colette patterns. A shame in some ways – this project was supposed to teach me how to adjust patterns! Already worn it twice and am very happy with the result!
Some left-over navy and white polka-dot cotton from my stash.
