Amber's Yellowtastic Hazel Dress

Hooray for the Hazel dress!

I am so excited about my most recent sewing project--I just stitched up Colette's Hazel dress and I love it so much.

I have been obsessing on this bright yellow fabric by Anyan for months now, and dreamed it would be an eye-catching summery dress. Hazel caught my eye and I knew it was meant to be!

This fabric is a little heavier than Sarai from Colette recommends, but I think it worked out nicely. It makes the Hazel a bit more crisp and tailored. A lighter lawn or double-gauze would make a cool breezy dress, which would be quite lovely in this midsummer weather.

I give the Hazel two thimbles up!

Wow I LOVE that fabric! I just made a Hazel dress for myself as part of the Colette Patterns sew-along that I co-host. Great pattern!

Gorgeous ! Such a flattering design and wow to the fabric. Makes me want to get out of my navy blue rut and add some colour.
