Colette Pattern Sew-Along - Are you participating?
I am so excited (again). I just saw that Colette pattern is hosting the Hawthorn Sew Along! I do love Colette patterns and have made a few clothes (not posted yet, but soon to come) already.
There are two version for the Hawthorn: a dress with a semi-circle skirt and a blouse with a peplum. Both have a flat collar and look absolutely stunning.
The recommended fabric are lightweight ones, such as lawn, cotton poplin and linen. They are nice fabrics to sew with and I even have a few lawns in my stash, yeah. I am not sure so, if they are long enough - I have to check when home. Such a pity, that I just made my picnic blanket skirt from polka dot linen. I can image the linen and polka dots would go so well with the dress. The collar would be in red or white, so beautiful.
The skill level is intermediate, but Colette patterns say that also a confident beginner could tackle the sew-along! Am I a confident beginner? What makes you a confident beginner? I mean I am able to fit a little, to sew straight lines, to attach sleeves and bias tape.
They are having great prices as well! $250 at Hart's fabric - imagine how much fabric you can buy with this! And also some Amy Butler fabrics, swoon.
What do you think? Are you going to participate in the sew-along?
I am definitively still thinking!
