I've been awaiting these eagerly. The new patterns from Colette arrived in the shop last week. Both suitable for beginners and both seriously delicious.
The Ginger Skirt is a simple and pretty a-line skirt with high waistband. There are three waist band versions, a pointed centre waist, a shaped curved band, and a straight waistband. The skirt can be cut on the bias if you are using stripes which makes for that clever chevron effect.
The Violet Blouse, another beginner pattern, is a button-fronted blouse with either short gathered sleeves or mid-length sleeves that gather at the hem with elastic. The blouse has a peter pan collar, bust darts, and back yoke with center gathering, and has a gentle loose fit.
Both these pattern are set to become classics, and both great for that summer wardrobe!
