Description

As my second Colette pattern I simply loved sewing this dress. I used quite thick cotton fabric and would perhaps choose a bit lighter fabric to my next Peony (there will be the next one!) but really like the outcome anyway. I had some trouble time getting the bodice to fit but managed it in the end.

This was the first time I used my new invisible zipper presser foot and can’t believe how I’ve managed without one all these years :)

Material Notes

I used cotton but would like to make one using light wool fabric

    I love this – I think you might have decided the next Colette pattern I should get! Also – aren’t invisible zipper feet :) great!!!?
