New skirt and blog award!

Colette Ginger skirt pattern

I’m going through a Colette-crazy faze.  When I was making the Colette Meringue skirt, I originally had the idea of making it with this beautiful Nani Iro fabric that I’ve had in my stash for almost a year.  Because the fabric is so detailed and visually interesting, I decided I would prefer it as a skirt without the scallops – and that is how I came to use the Ginger pattern.  It’s a really easy pattern to follow.  I ended up sewing in a slip, even though it is not part of the pattern, because the Nani Iro Double Gauze can be somewhat see-through.  I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Even though I feel I should get on to making the Pastille dress, I’m instead working on making the Colette Violet blouse – also a beginner sewing pattern.  Currently making a muslin – we’ll see how it goes!



In other news, I was recently awarded a Liebster blog award by She Sews to Conquer – so exciting and unexpected!  Thank you so much!

  1. Thanks for the Liebster love!

    Your skirt looks so beautiful! I love Nani Iro’s fabric – my husband bought me a few yards of the double gauze for Christmas but I have yet to use it. It’s so precious that nothing seems worthy!

  2. Oh congrats on the award and I love the skirt. Beautiful fabric and you’re right to leave off the scallops I think.
