Sew Weekly: Colette & Colour
YAY! Introducing my most recent Sew Weekly creation! I teased you through the week, and you may have seen my post yesterday on Mena's blog, but here's some darling photos just for you!
The pattern is a Colette Rooibos, and the fabric an old tablecloth, with some MAGNIFICENT flowers. If you can imagine a large square (as the tablecloth's original form), with a white line edging/border, the large clusters of flowers were in the corners and some other smaller flowers along the border. And now it's a beautiful little mini dress!
I'm so super happy with it, hence all these photos! Every part of the dress was planned out, to suit the flower placement, and this little vertical white line (on the back waistband, above) was the only small mistake with putting it all together, and it's not actually that bad!
So I just was looking at some of the comments on my Sew Weekly post, and noticed SARAI who MAKES Colette Patterns left a comment! I'm over the moon!
Wish I could stick around and gush a bit more, but I've got to go and work (and hopefully survive!) at SOUNDWAVE, which is a punk, hardcore & metal festival in Melbourne today. Thank you for your feedback as well, darlings! This has been such a fun week of sewing for me, and I get all dizzy when it works out so well! Best dress all year! *gush*
