Pattern Review: Colette 1013 Crepe Dress

Threads magazine - 156 – Aug./Sept. 2011 Issue
Article Image

Style Tip: This dress is ideal for soft, drapey fabrics and is a classic look for a little black dress.

This review was originally featured in Threads #156 (August/September 2011).

Colette-Crepe 1013

This effortlessly elegant A-line dress with a scoop or sweetheart neckline and inseam pockets, wraps from back to front and fastens with a wide sash encircling the waist. The petal-like cap sleeves give an additional feminine edge. Each pattern package includes 10 sizes, making it easy to find the perfect fit for you. However, with so many lines it can become difficult to differentiate between the sizes. Using a colored marker to trace your size before cutting will make it easier to follow. The illustrations and directions, laid out in a booklet format, are clear and easy to follow. The booklet also offers advice on how to relax and enjoy the sewing process; it is a great tool for the beginner or visual learner.

(Sized 0-18 for busts 33-46 in. and hips 35-48 in.)

Style Tip: This dress is ideal for soft, drapey fabrics and is a classic look for a little black dress.
