It’s a free-for-all this week so I thought it was about time I put together a Colette Pattern; The Parfait looks summery and fun, perfect for this Melbourne weather. I’ve decided to use some more of this tribal fabric I’ve been obsessed with this past month. It’s hard to see all the fancy details of this pattern because of the busy print. So I’ve taken close-ups of the details below. My legs are so white they will burn holes in your retinas, so place your safety glasses on now. I’ve taken the dress for a test run, this is important don’t you think? So this is what the dress looks like leaning up against a blue fence.
The details. I love the gathering along the bodice, it’s somewhat flattering and those pockets!? cute!
This is what she looks like sitting down. Not bad, the straps didn’t roll off my shoulders so that’s a bonus.
This is how she moves when you walk, not bad either, I think she might be a winner.
…and this is what she looks like when you sit upright on a swing. So now that I’ve made this dress, I can make more in all different shades except beige, I don’t like beige and maybe yellow, come to think of it! any pastel colour really. I would make a note in the back of the Colette booklet about the patterns bust; the bust was enormous, something I have only been able to achieved twice through mastitus, so adjustments have been made for my next Parfait. The perfect Summer dress.
So there you have it, short and sweet which is what we all need so you can finish off your Christmas shopping and throw the turkey in the oven.
Thank you for taking the time to visit during this very busy and festive time. Merry Christmas readers and
