New Colette Patterns in the Shop: Jasmine, Peony and Clover.

Colette has just released three elegant new patterns, and all of them suitable for beginners.  And the best news?  They have just arrived into the shop!

There is the Jasmine Blouse, the Peony Dress and, wait for it, the Clover Pants... yes, TROUSERS!!

The Jasmine Blouse is a figure-skimming top with no closures. The blouse is shaped with bust darts and center seams that gently hug the body. Version 1 has a long collar that can be tied in a bow and elbow length sleeves gathered to a cuff. Version 2 has a shorter contrast collar and a notched cuff.

The Peony Dress is an elegant bateau neck sheath dress with a fully removable cummerbund style belt which can be made in a matching or contrasting fabric, closing with a single button in back. Version 1 has 3/4 length sleeves, a contrasting belt, and in seam pockets. Version 2 has short sleeves, a matching belt, and no pockets.

The Clover Pants are beautifully slim... still can't get over the excitment of having a trouser pattern in the shop - our first!  They close with a side zipper for a streamlined look and easy sewing. Version 1 is ankle length, with small in-seam pockets set into the waistband. Version 2 is cropped just below mid-calf.
