New dress plans

Yesterday I've received my first Colette pattern. I can't believe how beautiful the packaging is!
I choose the Ceylon dress, which is a fourties style shirtdress:
"Shirt dress with inset waist, slightly dropped and curved waistline, and curved neckline yoke. Gathers at the bust provide fullness, while the skirt is gathered at the front and generously flared. Sleeves are short and puffed. Closes with 16 buttons down the center front."
as stated on the website of Colette patterns

There is a little booklet with the instructions sewn into the pattern enveloppe:

And here is the fabric I choose, a linen-cotton mix, greyish blue with white stripes. I think It will look beautyful!
First up to the muslin...
