Polka dress (based on Truffle and Licorice)

Added Jan 15, 2012

Noarootsi, Estonia






I used two Colette Sewing Handbook patterns – Truffle for the bodice and skirt (which I changed) and Licorice for the sleeves. I had to change the bodice, because I am between A and B cup :)
Only the skirt is lined.

Material Notes

Fabric is some kind of synthetic but the shine reminds silk satin. The dots are velvet. Good thing is that it doesn’t wrikle, bad thing is that it was quite hard to press down the seams and hem.

    I bought the book as well and love your combination. I am quite fond of the Truffle pattern, but want to make it more wintery…Do the Licorice sleeves match in perfectly with the Truffle armhole? Thanks!

      Thanks! I made this dress a while ago, so I don’t remember anymore, but I don’t remember that there were a problem…
