I Really Love: Colette Patterns

While clicking through the internet I stumbled upon Colette Patterns, which is a small sewing pattern company out of Portland, Oregon.  The timing of this stumble is perfect, as I have been thinking a lot lately about getting into the habit of sewing more of my own clothes, but have been having a hard time finding suitable patterns.


Now I can't decide which to try first...  Maybe the Jasmine blouse...
 or the Ceylon dress
These Clover pants are an absolute must.
 As is the Beignet skirt.
Lucky for me (and for you!) Colette Patterns are reasonably priced and the website has plenty of tutorials, and even a forum where you can discuss each of the patterns and ask questions if you are stuck.
Maybe there is a fella in your life who would like a handmade shirt?  Woohoo! There is a pattern for a shirt for him, too.
 Colette Patterns is owned by Sarai Mitnick, who is a professional sewing writer.  Be sure to check out not only the Colette blog, but her personal blog, Sweet Sassafras.  Also, watch for her book, The Colette Sewing Book, which is available for pre-order on Amazon.
