Many people are familiar with indie pattern company Colette Patterns. She has fabulously feminine patterns with a lovely vintage twist. The fact that they all have culinary themed names appeals to the foodie in me. I subscribe to their Facebook, and was delighted to find a notice for a new pattern.
This is the lovely Crepe pattern. It is a very cute wrap dress that I know I will be able to wear at work. I love a lot of her patterns, but knowing I can't wear them except for the weekend (I play with kids all day, sometimes in the mulch) has kept me from ordering more. I know I will utilized this pattern. It also helps that there are no closures to fiddle with. Yay. Unlike the Sencha I just ordered, which has a million and five buttons.
I know I'm a little slow on this particular bandwagon, but seeing all the fabulous versions of the Sencha all over the internet helped me finally commit to buying it. Remember, I've never paid more than 3.99 for a pattern (yay for sales) so you know this is true love. I already have about five different fabrics I want to make the Sencha out of. :)
I just put in the order, so hopefully I'll have these by Friday and can spend some of the weekend on them. I figure having these "beginner" patterns will help if things don't go so well with Lady Grey (which I still haven't found fabric for).
Also, I am a ninja and I taught that zipper who is boss. My Emma Pillsbury inspired polka dot just needs to be hemmed now. I should have that to show you all soon. :) Aloha all!
