Colette Sewing Handbook has arrived...

The Colette Sewing Handbook is here.  Here is a little bit of information:

The book is divided into sections with the last 5 sections having projects.  There are 3 dresses, a skirt, and a blouse with each pattern drafted in the Colette's sizing of 0 to 18.  Here are the projects:

This is the Merinque Skirt.  The scalloped hem gives this simple straight skirt a very pretty, feminine look.

This is the Pastille Dress.  It is a simple, cap-sleeved sheath.  A great project for learning how to fit.

This is the Truffle Dress.  This is a very feminine dress.  You can make it very tailored or you make it a bit softly and flowing.  It's entirely up to you.

This is the Taffy Blouse.  It is a beautiful, floaty blouse with flutter sleeves.  This blouse is cut on the bias.  This may have be a new technique for some.

  .This is the Licorice Dress. This is a sweet little dress that will just skim over your curves.

Additional information includes Getting Started which is information on basic tools, hand stitches, and sewing lessons.

Happy Stitching!
