Dahlia Dress

My wrist is still painful and I am having to wear a splint and see a hand therapist, apparently scaphoid injuries take a long time to heal! Anyway I can sew as long as I don’t spend hours at it and rest my hand every couple of hours, which is frustrating but I think my sewing is benefiting from the slower, less rushed approach. So I started this Dahlia dress as soon as we received the patterns from Colette, but I didn’t get it finished until a week later.Colette Dahlia dressThe pattern is easy to follow, clear instructions as always and some useful blog links for the harder bits such as gathering and attaching bias binding. I used some of our gorgeous China blue Linen fabric that feels gorgeous and has a really nice drape to it. I can see myself using this pattern again and again although I think I will make a smaller size next time as the fit is quite generous.

Happy Sewing!

      • Ooo, sounds nice! A couple of weeks ago i bought the chiffon that you had on sale which would make a lively version 2 with a lining.
        So much fabric to choose from…! 😃
