Colette is the ultimate long summer dress. It is very comfortable to wear with its loose fitted empire line, wide sleeves and boat neck. Colette is effortless chic with front buttons and many pleats on both sides of a shaped waistband. The pattern also comes as a blouse, a timeless option that you can wear daily. Whether you choose to sew the dress or the blouse, prepare your sunglasses, a big sun hat and sandals!
It covers UK sizes 6 to 20, US sizes 2 to 16 and EU sizes 34 to 48.
The Colette dress is an intermediate level pattern, with a concealed zip closure, a facing and inner waistband to sew. A glossary is available on the website at www.camimade.com/glossary.
