Colette Ceylon Dress

Santa Cruz, Cali...






I made the Colette Ceylon dress and I love it! It was a little tedious with all the buttons (there are 16) but it was worth the work!

    I like this dress. It would be great if I could get a copy of the pattern to fit my size.

    Can you post a tutorial on how to change the sleeves. Also, how much adjustment did you have to do to make it fit right?

    It looks stunning, the style is very flattering to your figure, and I especially like seeing it done in a print, I think I may just have to add this to my increasingly long list of things to make too!

    I’ve been eying that dress for some time. I just bought Chantilly and Rooibos, this and Lady Grey are next on my list. Love it!

    I love the print! It’s so refreshing and something I haven’t seen tried with this dress yet! Lovely work!

    I have this pattern, haven’t made it yet but love yours, I haven’t seen a version in a printed fabric yet and I have decided I like it, your choice really suits the pattern style and I love your covered buttons :)
