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