This is a sheath dress from the Colette Patterns Sewing Handbook. I have had this royal blue in the stash for a year now. It was a gift from my mom last summer.This is a great dress for work.
I did just notice now that the hem is not even. Its easy enough to fix. That kind of thing happens to me when I start to get crossed eyed. Its such a simple dress that it goes to many occasions. I plan to wear it with an obi belt. I like the color a lot!
This was the last thing I had to make from this book. Now that I got good practise, I can make more!
Linen and regular zipper to match.
