Description

This year I’ve been trying to make one new dress pattern each month… here’s July! This is the Colette Macaron pattern and I’m still evaluating whether or not I like the style. I LOVE the fabrics and the fit, though!

For more info on converting the pattern intended for all wovens to a mix of knit and woven, check out this post

    Couldn’t agree more – the fabrics are awesome. I think the dress itself looks great – but I think this is mostly due to your skill at fitting and getting the pattern proportions right for you. I feel a bit ambivalent about this Colette pattern too – I like the idea, but I wouldn’t be to sure about the style on me either. Regardless – it’s a gorgeous creation :)
