Green Ceylon

My first Colette pattern and it’s a success. The Ceylon dress has a 1940’s style I really like.
The first time I saw it, I was drawn to the cute sleeves, the front yoke and the 16 buttons to open the dress.
I used again the cotton-linen fabric I’ve used for my last two dresses, it’s great for the hot weather of Spain.
For more details, see my blog.

      Ah, those shoes have a lot of success! But they are not so great for walking all day long…
