Another Colette winner, the Rooibos dress

Another dress done, another favorite to add to my closet.  My only regret with this dress is that the weather isn't warmer so I could wear it all the time.  I think I'm just going to have to pair it up with some leggings and a sweater so I can wear it all winter long.

Colette's patterns continue to amaze me. They're so easy to follow along and I have loved the outcome of every one.

I love the fit and the design of this dress! As I mentioned before, I had some 'learning experiences' while making this, but they taught me a lot and I feel like I can better understand some sewing techniques I didn't have a grasp of before.

The pockets are great. Just the right size and I love the accent fabric that I ended up going with.

I can't wait to make this dress again. I think I'll make it in a heaver fabric and maybe add some sleeves so that I won't feel too silly wearing it in the winter.  But this one will be the perfect Spring/Summer dress.


  1. So adorable! Great job!

  2. That's great and the colour really suits you. The accents are pretty. Could you slip a long-sleeved t-shirt under it? You might get to wear it a bit sooner if you could. Great job!

  3. This is gorgeous! I haven't tried this pattern yet but your version makes it very tempting...
