Colette Patterns Ceylon dress. I added an invisible zipper to the side seam and closed the front. Only the top 3 buttons are functional. Well, on the other side I’ve spend some time to finish those with bound buttonholes and made fabric covered buttons. I shortened the skirt by 2.5 cm and finished the hem with some lace. The fabric is a linen-cotton mix, perfect for the summer! I love the vintage feel of this dress! I’m sure I’m going to make another one for the fall season with some heavier fabric.
