I LOVE Colette Patterns!  In case you don’t know they are an independent pattern company based out of Portland.  They make gorgeous vintage inspired dresses that flatter a variety of sizes (it seems like they were designed with curvy girls in mind).  Here is their adorable blog!  The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

This dress has 16 buttons down the front, needless to say it was extremely tedious but worth it in the end.  I changed the sleeves to a simple cap, the pattern features a gathered fuller one that I didn’t really love.

I love this dress, its so fresh and sunny.  Thanks for looking!
