I finished the Parfait dress! And it’s love all the way. Though I will confess that I was at times a little overwhelmed by the large amount of pattern pieces that the dress consists of. My small corner in the living room went into chaos mode and I regularly had to perform international searches to find all the tiny pieces that got lost in the mess. But the actual assembly of the dress went super smooth, it’s a rather easy dress to sew. And I am floored by how well it looks and fits, Sarai of Colette patterns has done an amazing job with this design! And she is just a one-person indie pattern designer, which makes me even more impressed. Every little detail is very well thought out.
Smaller cups. I graded the bodice down to a size 0 since the the pattern is drafted for a c-cup. I am happy with the fit now.It’s nice to wear something more fitted for a change. While I’m not exactly super curvy, my body goes in and out all over the place and I think that styles like the Parfait dress does my shape a favor. That said I’m too much of a comfort freak to fully embrace the fitted look. But it’s nice with a style switch once in a while.
Faux fastening. The original fastening consists of two buttons, of which one is hidden. But since I made the strap a bit too short there was no room for a two button fastening, so just attached the button without making a buttonhole.
Wardrobe remix. I feel slightly awkward doing outfit shots, but I wanted to try something else visually this time. The cardigan is also sewn by me.Read my review of the Parfait dress
