Made from the Colette Pattern 1017 – The Peony Dress, nicknamed the green peon because it’s green and I’ve always been rather fond of warcraft…

But anyway! I’m loving this dress pattern, and would recommend to all :) More pictures over at my blog:

      Pleats are a wonderful thing, even if they are a tad darstedly to do. Thanks :)

    Yay lovely! I’ve been eyeing that pattern off for a while hehe, you did a great job! I always love seeing your creations! Also I went to Tessuti after our meeting and had a little browse. Unfortunately nothing suits my budget but it’s all so fabulous :)
