Summer Colette Patterns

Colette Patterns released 3 new summer patterns this morning and I just couldn’t resist ordering them all.

To begin is a view of Hazel, one of the two sundresses. It is described as a beginner pattern with a v-seamed bodice with bias cut side panels. The skirt is a dirndl style with pockets. It is retailing for $18 US for the printed pattern and $14 US for the digital version on the Colette Patterns website.







Next is the second sundress, named Lily and described as a princess seamed sundress. The sewing level for this one is intermediate. The neckline and pockets have a flap detail, sewable in the same fabric or contrasting. The skirt is slim fitting and has a kickpleat. An invisible zipper closes up the back. This pattern is also retail for $18 US for the printed pattern or $14 US for the digital pattern.







The final pattern is a pair of shorts named Iris. These are described as a  beginner pattern, with front side seam pockets and a 4 1/2 inch inseam. A little short for me, but I figure I can add an inch or two to the length. These close with an invisible side zipper. The price for this pattern is $16 US for printed and $12 US for digital.

Upcoming New Colette Patterns

I’m excited. Really excited. Colette Patterns have announced that 3 new patterns will be released on Tuesday April 10. Very little details have been released, only the fact that the patterns will be comprised of 2 sundresses and 1 short pattern. I’ll be online Tuesday morning, anxiously awaiting the new releases. I can’t wait. For the first time, Colette Patterns will also be offering these patterns for purchase in a digital format. No pictures yet, I’ll update with details on Tuesday.

In other sewing news, my fabric for the Peony and Crepe patterns has come in. I had ordered red linen and red gingham from along with the notions needed. I haven’t prewashed yet, they came in days before Joyce was hospitalized. I’ve reprioritized projects, work, and school over these past few weeks due to Joyce’s death.

Next Project


Crepe by Colette Patterns.

I’m getting ready to head to my local fabric store to pick out my fabric for both the Crepe and the Peony patterns. While I do wear pants, I tend to wear them most often when I’m in a style rut or feeling a little down. I’m looking forward to some new dresses in a spring palette. I’ll probably select my favourite colour, red.
