Adelaide, by Seamwork
from Colette Patterns Follow

Sometimes the best dress is one that you can just pop on, and with its snap front, Adelaide is just that. This tank dress features bust and back darts for a flattering fit, with a belted waist to accentuate your curves.

Try making Adelaide in a vibrant ikat to wear to a summer concert, or a solid twill paired with your favorite sandals for a relaxed look. It's not just a summer dress - if the weather is chilly, layer it with leggings or a sweater. If you are feeling adventurous, dye some linen using the natural dye techniques in this month's issue to create an entirely unique dress!

There are even more possibilities to make Adelaide an enitrely customized dress. Have fun with the belt: make it in a contrasting color or, if you dye your own fabric, create a gradient effect with a dip dye technique. If snaps aren't your style, swap them for buttons and sew up a striped belt for a nautical theme.
