Polkadot Peony

Added Jan 24, 2013

Berlin, Germany






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!

Material Notes

Some left-over navy and white polka-dot cotton from my stash.

    Great job I have not heard of this ‘’Collete pattern’’ before is where did you buy/download it. The Fabric choice is also a good one
