Description

I’m so happy with how this dress turned out! It’s my first dress for the 4 × 1 June Challenge and I used the Parfait pattern from Colette.

    I have yet to see a Parfait dress that wasn’t adorable, and yours is certainly no exception. =)

    Excellent! I hadn’t paid much attention to this Colette pattern until you made your version. Your positioning of the fabric’s stripes is perfect.

    This is so adorable! I know you’re on the opposite side of Italy, but I visited Urbino and Pesaro a few years ago and those cities are beautiful!

      Thank you so much!
      They really are two beautiful cities, if you come back to Italy you should consider visiting Turin, it was the first capital of Italy and the city where the kings lived!

    Lovely sundress – those pockets are really cute, and I really like the bodice section. Well done.
