Description

i made the pastille from the colette patterns handbook. i used a red cotton/rayon blend twill fabric i bought for super cheap! i underlined the bodice for structure because it was a loose weave and i wanted to keep it from shifting out of shape.

initially i wasn’t totally in love with this pattern but the feminine details really grew on me so i decided to give it a try. i had seen some major fitting issues on this dress which i easily worked out on my muslin.

that last pic is a shot of the inside before the zipper was inserted and facings tacked down.

    This looks great! I’m happy to see the Pastille stitched up, I’ve been thinking about making it at some point.
