The Laurel:  Collette

A wonderful pattern for a simple shift dress that can be made with or without pockets.  There are also various collar options for this pattern which can be found on the collette website.  I made the first dress with an invisible zip, but as I realised I could still pull it on without undoing it, I made the second one without a zip!  I also made a quick top with some liberties fabric I bought in Totnes at Stone Fabrics (a treasure trove of fabrics) with some contrasting bias binding.
