Polkadot Peony

My first go at the Colette Peony. Unlike many other people, I didn’t have any trouble with the fit on this pattern. I just shortened the side darts on the bodice slightly, as I have done on other Colette patterns. A shame in some ways – this project was supposed to teach me how to adjust patterns! Already worn it twice and am very happy with the result!

Material Notes

Some left-over navy and white polka-dot cotton from my stash.

    Great job I have not heard of this ‘’Collete pattern’’ before is where did you buy/download it. The Fabric choice is also a good one

      Thanks! You can buy direct from colettepatterns.com online, but I bought it from sewbox.co.uk. Some -including Peony-are also now available for download, in case you can’t get hold of them anywhere near you.
