What kind of fabric did you use? A groovy garden blue by Alice Kennedy
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? Usually I don’t wear such “wild” prints on my dresses, but I was so in the mood for flowers and so hungry for summer that I decided to use this colourful fabric.
What thoughts do you have about the project? It was such a lot of fun to sew the Parfait. I had to adjust the top of the dress from an C-cup to an A-cup (like in every Colette Pattern), but it was no problem at all. First I didn’t know if Parfait also fits a person with a “uncurvy” body like mine, but I saw so many beautiful different versions in the Colette Flickr group that I decided to buy this pattern and have a try. I think I will wear this dress very often this summer (if the weather in Germany will allow it).
