I've been sitting on the Macaron pattern for almost a year, waiting for an excuse to sew it up. Here's my excuse! I even bought fabric a couple of months back. I'm going to follow along with the sew along which is perfect timing. Here's my inspiration dress:
ok, the fabric isn't too similar (ETA: Photos now below photos to come) but it's a Japanese cotton, with gold, red and a bunch of other colours. I'm going to do the body (including the waist) in the cotton and the yoke and sleeves in black.
I plan on using the dress fabric for piping around the sleeves, neckline and waistlines. ETA: Like Sherry did here
