Stripy Colette Wren Dress

August 29, 2017

This month for my Minerva project I chose the Colette Wren pattern and some stripy black and teal Ponte Roma to make it in.

Colette Wren dress

The Colette Wren dress is a pattern which I hadn’t really noticed much, until Me Made May came along and I saw a few cute versions out there.  I think the envelope photo does it absolutely no favours – the dress shown (version one – the sleeveless dress with a 6 gore skirt) is an insipid colour, the fabric looks too sheer and I think it looks too tight!  I chose the pattern for version 2 – short sleeved, wrap style bodice with a gathered a-line skirt.


The dress was very easy to make – I made it in one day and wore it out to the pub that night!  If you want to read more about it, see my post over on Minerva’s blog here.

    They should use your dress for the pattern envelope! It looks great.
