I had a super fun time sewing the Macaron for Sew Colette 2.0 and next up for October is the Peony dress!
I hadn’t been able to get really excited about the shape of the dress until I considered adding a full skirt to the simple bodice in place of the a-line one as the pattern calls for.
I think it would be great to add a contrasting color band on the skirt. Like this dress from Dear Creatures. Now I’ll just need to make the Anise in a sweet blue to match right?
The schedule for October is:
Week of October 1st: Sew-Along Kick-Off (Muslins, measurements, etc)
Week of October 8th: Fabulous Fit
Week of October 15th: It’s All About Fabric!
Weeks of October 22nd – 31st: Be Our Guest
Week of November 5th: Peony Parade
Who else is joining in?
P.S. The lovely Rochelle featured my Macaron in the parade on her blog and sent me this little badge to proudly display!September 18, 2012
