Great patterns for gals with curves.
When I first saw these Colette patterns, I fell in love with them. Thought it was a shame that I wouldn't be able to wear them and would it be wrong to buy them for my now 2 year old daughter to wear when she is older?
But others have said that they would suit my figure and so I took a second look. They are divine patterns. Remind me of vintage style dresses of the 50s.
The patterns are in a gorgeous little booklet layout. Well laid out and easy to follow. I had trouble with the fit as I think I made it a size too big for my top half. But that was my problem; not the pattern's.
I top stitched around the top of the bodice though this wasn't in the pattern.
I also decided to re-invent the way you insert an invisible zipper. OK, so properly reading the instructions on the zipper packet, in my sewing book and in any one of a dozen on-line tutes would have saved me the grief but it reminded me to try that as an option next time I am doing something for the first time.
Anyhow here tis.
The fit needs more tweaking to sit better but that's something new to me that I need to work on. Meanwhile it is wearable. A bit low cut over the cleavage area so will have to shorten the straps or get a bit funky with my dress code.
