I was asked to help test one of the new Colette Patterns designs: the Ceylon dress. As with the other Colette Patterns designs I’ve worked with, the pattern was a dream to sew up, and in no time (I did it in a weekend–right before we left for our Virginia trip) I had a lovely dress! The fabric I picked out was not my first or preferred choice, a green polyester from JoAnn Fabrics. But, at the time, I didn’t have any other options. Quite happily though, I love how the bright color works with the pattern’s lines and even the fabric isn’t half bad (I normally shy away from polyester)! I also made a little self-fabric belt (not included in the pattern) because I’m obsessed with matching belts. lol. This dress has fast become one of my top favorites; it’s the right balance of lady-like charm and classic style. (In fact, I think this might be my Christmas dress this year!)
