Have all of you bought your fabric for the Pastille dress? I have been planning on sewing up this dress since I got the Colette Patterns book in my hands, so I ordered the fabric above a few months ago. It's very similar to what is on the model, but with less orange, at least I think so.
The fabric I chose is a linen from Mood, which will be perfect for holding the bottom pleats of the dress. Sarah chose an adorable quilting cotton, which I am happy about for my own selfish reasons. You see, where I live there are TONS of quilting stores, but little to no stores that carry fabric for garment sewing. I am so happy to know that this dress can be sewn in quilters cotton. There are so many adorable fabrics available and the possibilities are endless, so I had some fun daydreaming about some quilters cotton fabrics I found online!
This fabric from Harts Fabric would give your dress a Hawaiian look. You could wear the dress with some cute sandals or wedges for summer. Wait, I kind of want to order this fabric now...
What about making the bottom of the dress in this awesome print and making the top in a solid pink or red? I totally stole the idea of using two different fabrics from ToastyKnitsandSews on the Sew Colette Flickr group.
So do any of you have any exciting plans for your Pastille? Any fun colors or embellishments? I want to hear about it!
