This is my second attempt of Colettes Macaron dress, and my favourite thing I’ve ever made by far. I am so much in love with it. I love the colour combination, so very berry me. The cordurory is so petable, that I do find myself stroking the fabric when I wear it. The purple cotton had a slight stretch to it, which for me meant I had easy movement when I was on the dance floor. When I bought the fabric, my sister thought the combination was a bit weird, but she has eaten her words and agrees they were a perfect fabric/colours for me.
Again, I stress, what a joy colette patterns are to use. I love it that it comes in such a large range of sizes and that I didn’t have to alter the pattern as the largest size fitted me like a dream.
