Colette patterns has just released a new versatile dress pattern ‘Dahlia’
Dahlia is a great dress to make for all year long but is very adaptable for this time of year when the season is changing and our wardrobes have to be adaptable.
Version 1 is ideal for cooler climes with its 3/4 length raglan-style sleeves. The dress has a flattering flat front skirt with a kick pleat at the back hem with small amount of gathering around the inset waist yoke. The neckline and sleeves have been finished with bias tape for a clean stylish look without the need for fussy facing pieces.

Version 2 is more summery and sleeveless. Featuring cleverly constructed straps from bias tape, and a six-panel skirt, this version of Dahlia is ideal for warmer months, and can be worn layered up with cardigans and sweaters, or by itself it can be worn as an understated cocktail dress.
