Colette Patterns have released a new skirt pattern. Selene - a classic pencil skirt. I have been lucky enough to get an advanced copy, so I've made one up in denim for casual autumn style. It is perfect timing as my autumn wardrobe is somewhat lacking (to say the least!).
The store has just been stocked with some fabulous patterns from Colette Patterns - including a re-stock of the popular Phoebe dress. . All are perfect for your autumn and winter wardrobe. And nearly all of them have detailed sew-alongs you can follow. Each sew-along will help you select fabrics, achieve the perfect fit and walk you through new techniques.
I made a couple of Hestia Skirts by I Am Patterns this summer - and I loved them. So it stands to reason that while it's getting cooler here, I'm not ready to give up on my summer favourites. That's where the beauty of layering comes into play.
I've swapped out the sneakers and singlets for boots, tights and a simple cashmere top. Still super comfortable, easy to wear and warm! For everyday use, and walking the kids to school, I think I might throw on some flat shoes though!
She has a thing for stacks of beautiful fabrics, delights in holding something made to last, and respects good craftsmanship. These are the driving forces behind the Miss Maude shop. And here are her musings.
