Description

Let me introduce you to my first Rooibos dress by Colette patterns. I’m so very happy with this dress, I’m sure it won’t be the last.

I love the finish, the style, the fabric, the Liberty piping, the pockets, everything!

I made surprisingly few modifications to the pattern, but I did cut a variety of sizes for fit, from a size 2 to an 8. The key change that I did make to the pattern however, was to raise the back of the dress as I wanted this to be a work dress and a don’t really feel too comfortable in a low back at work. For fitting purposes, I also lengthened the bust and back darts slightly and sewed a very scant hem.

The fabric is a lovely viscose from Tessuti. It’s a really difficult colour to photograph, kinda a warm black brown colour. The piping and facings were made with some Liberty, Emilia’s Flowers.
