Sew: Colette Hazel Dress FAIL
The dreaded hanger shot. The Colette Hazel Dress and I are not friends. I shouldn't be too harsh as I think it is mainly due to the fabric and not the pattern. The fabric is quite a stiff poplin that I bought in Japan last year. It is not nice fabric and I've become accustomed to nice fabric. The fit issues are mainly with the bodice darts but I don't love it enough to unpick it and attempt to fix it.
You win some, you lose some.
I'm willing to try again in a nicer, softer fabric. I even bought some Japanese cotton voile yesterday when I popped in to Rathdowne Fabrics for notion supplies. We will see how that goes.
Have you tried the Colette Hazel dress? What's your opinion?
