Summer Stripe Ceylon

This little dress was meant to be a test of the Colette Patterns Ceylon, but I ended up liking it so much that it’s definitely a wearable muslin!

    Very cute indeed! I’m thinking of getting the Ceylon pattern. Is it difficult? I’ve done a couple of projects but am still a beginner. Thanks!

      It’s really not that hard—I’d say the most tedious part is all the button-holes! Colette Patterns’ instructions are so very clear that it really makes it easy to follow along. Go for it!

    Colette Patterns are just so much fun! You really did a wonderful job. A matter of fact yours is my favorite finished Ceylon yet. Nicely done!
