Colette CrepeApril 8, 2012
Once a year, whether I like it or not, I get sewing fever. This year, it seems like there are more awesome patterns out there than ever. I chose Colette Crepe, and boy, I'm glad I did. I love this dress.
It's a wrap-around, no zip/button dress, and it was, facings aside, very easy. And fast! Three hours to prep/cut, 4.5 hours to sew. For me, anyway, that's fast. Admittedly, there was a moment when we were due at a dinner party, and I was standing in the kitchen in my underwear, ironing the hem I needed to sew, but that's the kind of race I like.
You can see by this shot I'd moved the vacuum cleaner. (Classy!)
Closer shot of fabric: it's orange and tiny white dots on dark blue, with an orange sash.
Angle of shot is weird and makes me look like a woman in a comic-book. Oh, well.
It has POCKETS!
and it's just fun:
