Today six of the best patterns from the Colette Patterns stable arrived on the Miss Maude door step. Three women's and three men's patterns - which can also be easily made up as women's styles. Another thing I love about sewing - such freedom to create what works for you, and not what is dictated by latest fashion.
Colette patterns pride themselves on creating patterns that not only suit a wide variety of body shapes and sizes, but also teach by providing, clear easy to read instructions that walk you through each project. They have even though about how the instructions are presented - they actually lye flat on your sewing table without taking all your space.
Each tissue pattern is housed in an integrated packet at the back of the pattern booklet. Genius.
The Walden by Colette and Colette Patterns now being stocked are the Negroni Shirt, Cooper Bag, Albion Duffle Coat, Pheobe Dress, Moneta Dress and Dahlia Dress.
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.
