Mocking up Hawthorn


Jezebel is wearing my muslin for the newest Colette pattern, Hawthorn. I am in luv, my friends.


I was worried that the circle skirt would make my hips look way wide, but it is the sweetest dress. Take my word for it – I look cute. Well, you’ll see in a few days.


And it’s so easy to put together. All the seams match. Crazy! I cut a straight size 6, and it just drapes perfectly. I don’t need to adjust a thing.

I have always admired Colette patterns, and this is one cried out for me.


I found the perfect fabric at, a funky voile cotton that looks like a 1950’s Florida postcard. Stupid me did not order a voile to underline the dress at the same time, and there’s none to be found in this area.


I’m off to to find a skin tone voile or lawn. Hop over to Colette Patterns – they just started the sewalong for this piece d’ resistance!
