My Colette Laurel in scalloped white eyelet is the perfect Southern dress for a Charleston Sunday brunch.
When this dress first came out, I knew right away I wanted to make it out of scalloped eyelet. I searched everywhere for the perfect eyelet and finally found it here. Luckily, the scallops are on both sides, so I only needed a 1 1/2 to make the dress. This fabric was a little pricey, so lucky me!
I cut a size 0 for the upper bodice and sleeves and graded out to a 4 for the waist and hips. It’s too big for my liking, so next time I will cut a straight 0. The armholes on this dress were also way to tight for my liking. This was an easy fix. Leave me a comment if you need help figuring out how to do it!
I also decided to do a neck facing instead of the bias tape. What do you think…with or without the belt?
The Colette Laurel is an easy sew. I think it would look good in just about any fabric! I can’t wait to make another one! Maybe out of this beautiful fabric from Anna Maria Horner at Hawthorne Threads.
