oh Yoda do get it!
It is beautiful, I finsihed it at 2am this morning and once I figured out my fit problem am just in love with it. I have done their HAZEL too and it is a gorgeous everyday dress, but this has turned into a lovely special occasion dress for sure

It's lovely, I have a very small bust, would it be too puffy?

I think there is a tute on their site for reducing the bust darts....
I had to make a bunch of adjustments; decreasing waist dart, bust dart,
Good luck

It is easy to do a small bust adjustment. Look around the web for tutorials or buy a pattern adjustment book.  It is worth it to fit the pattern to your body properly. I am a "C" cup and found that I didn't need to adjust the Parafait pattern. I think Colette are generally designed for "C"s
