My current project: a maxi dress using the Parfait pattern by Colette Patterns.
It's just about finished except for the buttons and hem. I attempted to make the Parfait last year but gave up on it. Then I saw the maxi dress that Thread Carefully posted on the Colette Patterns flickr group. I had.to.have.one.
Maxi dresses are surely on trend, but most of them to tend to be a bit unflattering. Also, they are made with knits. I was dying for a woven maxi dress pattern that didn't look like a muumuu. The Parfait is perfect for a maxi dress.
I can't wait to finish it :)
