I made the Colette Penny dress in Version 1 using my beautiful Atelier Brunett Stardust Ochre Fabric.

I’m very pleased with my results. I had to do minimal adjustments to the bodice since I’m long waisted, but overall the fit was spot on. Version 1 does have a big gathered skirt, so in hindsight I wish I would of used version 2 skirt instead. It was a little too much skirt for my taste, but I still love my dress.

The construction is straight forward, but can be a little tricky if you’ve never attached a collar before. Luckily the sewing community is a wealth of knowledge. Closet Case Patterns has a fantastic tutorial on shirts! Highly recommend giving it a read if you’re making a shirt.
