My first Colette pattern and so it was only right that I made up one of my favourites. This project took me ages. I had a lot of fitting problems and made a few adjustments. I re-drafted the waistband as the pattern waistband appeared to be too small. I made the waistband longer than the original. Instead of doing a neck facing I lined the entire dress including the sleeves. I made up a hem facing for the sleeves and interfaced the sleeve hem facing, the waistband and the hem.
