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!
