Oh, how I wish I could teleport to Portland tomorrow night to attend the book launch party of Colette's new sewing book.

I remember when I first came across Colette patterns it was the sweet, unique and fresh pattern cover design that initially caught my eye. No tacky Butterick model photos here. Instead a soft color palette with a sketch of a curvy normal looking girl on the cover.

Colette's first sewing book came out just a couple weeks ago. Her patterns in the book continue to carry out her fresh take on classy vintage designs. But what really makes Colette amazing is her Blog and all the amazing free sewing tips and patterns she offers up to the public. In the cyber world, people are always on the hunt for not just good freebies but excellent ones and they can be hard to come by.

If you have ever had the itch to try and sew a garment, then I recommend heading over to her blog to not only be inspired but to pick up some great techniques you are sure to employ with your stitched creations.


  1. The patterns sound lovely. I totally agree about Butterick patterns.

  2. I'll have to check it out! I don't know if my sewing skills are ready for such magic yet though.


Hi there! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
