Pattern Description: Fitted bodice with semi circle skirt.
Pattern Sizing:0-16. I cut a 0 for the bodice and a 2 for the skirt.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, absolutely.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I find Colette pattern instrucuctions very detailed and clear to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the romantic and feminine style, it is very easy to wear, simple and elegant.
Fabric Used: 2.7 meters of cotton eyelet.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I have sewn four Colette patterns so far and I kind of know beforehand the alterations that I will be needing. I always compare my measures against the pattern's before even starting the muslin and I make some alterations on paper. In this case I found that the fit was easier that that of other Colette patterns. I made a forward shoulder alteration of 1,5 cm and I created a second dart at the side seam. I also lengthened the skirt by about 2". That was all. I muslined only the bodice.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will definitely sew it again and I recommend it, but you have to make a muslin first.
Conclusion: This dress has immediately become one of my favorites!
