Parfait Menagerie Dress

Added Aug 4, 2011

London, United K...






A really light and cool sundress I made from the Colette Patterns Parfait pattern. It’s a great pattern for a sundress: beautifully constructed and fitted, yet comfortable enough to jump around in (with the children!). I used a silvery grey double gauze fabric with a lovely drape. It’s a curious little print with a whole menagerie of animals hidden in the foliage, hence the name! Read more on my blog

Japanese double gauze, two vintage buttons for the straps

    Yours is one of my favourite Parfait versions. It’s really cute and flattering on you.

    I’ve just had a look at your blog. Considering your earlier work, progress is really visible. It seems this one is the best done technically speaking, plus the best match of pattern, i.e. cut and the fabric. The shine on your face says it must be pleasant to wear. The photo on the paper pattern is not nearly as pretty as the one you’ve made. Keep up the good work! I travel to London for work often enough to use your tipn on What Katie did shop. compliments!
