Peony – not just my favourite flower…

But also a dress pattern from Colette!   Cute, right? I like the simplicity of the design plus it comes with in seam pockets. It’s the first pattern I’m making which has them included and not just added in by myself! I figured it’ll be an easy pattern to go back to time and time again […]

Bettine, Bettine, Bettine…
