Jasmine Green Tea Dress

This is Ceylon from Colette Patterns, made up in a mystery fabric I scored for £1 from Walthamstow market. It’s lovely and floaty, perfect for this pattern which has lots of gathers and a wide skirt. I added piping to the yoke, which was tricky but worth the effort, I think. There are more photos and details on my blog, Tilly and the Buttons.

    I have to admit, the Ceylon pattern has never really wowed me… I seem to prefer some of the other Colette dresses, but you might have changed my mind with this dress! It’s beautiful!

    Beautiful dress! You did such a nice job with the piping. Not necessarily an easy task.
