Crepe dress

I bought my first colette pattern, the crepe dress, and I have already finished it! I didn't even have time to tell you about it before it was done, and I think I am pretty happy with the results.

Here is the front.

I will really try hard and get a picture of the dress on me, but for now these will have to do. I don't have a long mirror in my house (tragic right??), and so I would have to enlist the help of others to take the picture. So far, I keep forgetting to do that.

I plan on wearing this to a wedding in the summer.

The dress was actually really easy to put together, and I can already see more colette patterns in my future. I only did one small alteration to the dart under the bust to make it a little tighter. I think I could have done a few more based on the fit .. but overall I would say it's a wearable result!


  1. Nice job on the dress -- I love the red sash with the black!!

  2. Lovely dress! I have yet to make any clothes for myself. Scared I guess :)
