Hawthorn dress pattern has arrived...

Colette Patterns has another new dress pattern - the Hawthorn dress pattern.  This is a lovely shirt dress with a semi-circle skirt with either sleeveless or 3/4 length sleeves.  There is also a peplum top variation.  This pattern has a little bit of a vintage feel to it.   Here's a few pictures:

This is definitely a twirly dress.  Looking forward to seeing every one's variations.

Be inspired..

Have you seen the beautiful sheath dresses available?  Have you noticed the exposed zippers in the back of these dresses?  Here's three of Elie Tahara examples:

These dresses ranged from $398 to $598 and can be found on Elie Tahara's website.  A good jumping off point would be the fitted version of the KISS Dress. Dress pattern by Brensan Studios.
