INTRODUCING THE MINI COLFAX DRESS PATTERN

April 28, 2016

The Mini Colfax Dress is now for sale and is the perfect little version of the adult sized pattern recently released. It has a flattering A-line silhouette with a front yoke and visible binding around the neckline and armholes.

The dress comes in 2 versions. View A is streamlined with one fabric for the whole dress. View B has patch pockets and a visible hem facing that is sewn up a in contrasting fabric along with the yoke and bindings. You can of coarse mix and match the two views for even more options.

For fabrics I recommend easy to work with quilting cottons, lawns, double gauze and linens. All of these fabrics will press well and give beautiful crisp corners for the yoke and other details.

The Mini Colfax is a really versatile pattern. If you sew it up in a simple quilting cotton it makes a perfect everyday dress for warm weather. It can also be sewn up in a more precious fabric for a special occasion outing.

Please let me know if you have any questions or head on over here for more information such as fabric requirements and sizing.
