I recently finished Colette’s Peony and I love the vintage vibe this dress has.
I always love it when I put on a dress and my husband says. “Where you going to wear that?” I say, “Work, why? Is it not work attire?” He says, “Well yeah, you just looked like you stepped out of the 50′s though.” Mission accomplished!
I added a peter pan collar to this which probably adds to the 50′ish vibe. I used Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing to draft my own. Gertie’s book is just awesome! Get it if you haven’t already! Check out all the dress details and more pictures on my blog.
