New Colette Patterns: Violet and Ginger

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!
