i just finished this today - and i'm pretty excited about the end result! yay new dresses!!

some info: this is the ceylon dress from colette patterns, size 4 (although i ended up taking in the waist quite a bit, so maybe a 2 there). the fabric i used was lightweight 100% pin dot cotton. i also made the piping out of bias strips of cotton and teeny tiny cording. all seams on the inside are serged & pressed open, and the facings are all bound with bias strips Smiley

i love those this turned out, and i especially love how it was cut generously in the bust so i didn't have to do a FBA Smiley








as always, more photos/details on my blog.

thanks for looking!
