I just had to share this gorgeous re-imagining of Macaron that Liz created. A long time in the planning and making, I think you’ll agree that the result is absolutely stunning.

Hop over to Liz’s blog for more pictures and tons more project details. You really must go there and see the workmanship yourself.

I really love a good peplum dress, and I wouldn’t have thought to make the Macaron pattern into one! So beautiful! Unfortunately when I try to reimagine patterns, my results don’t always come out too well… (http://vintagezest.blogspot.com/2013/02/sewing-rewind-works-in-progress-edition.html)

Congratulations on the beautiful dress!
