I needed a dark dress, and I had purchased the Colette Wren pattern awhile back but never got around to it. I had also picked up this very thick fabric of unknown origin from the discount bin from a nearby Hancocks some months ago, and I decided I would combine the two.
I love the pattern. I'll be making more because I enjoy the bodice quite a bit. I also like the fabric well enough, but something happened at the waistband and I think it's a result of the fabric being made of some sort of synthetic something-or-other. Do you see how it bulges and rides up on my right side at the waistline? It's so strange!
