I have just discovered Colette sewing patterns through Pink Chalk Fabric. I’m in love with the ink and watercolor drawings of the clothes on their patterns and how the model has been painted in a wash of color. Completely lovely. The one below is called Parfait, and I’m determined, once and for all, to sew myself something wearable because of this pattern. Colette’s blog is here, and designer Sarai Mitnick’s blog Sweet Sassafras is here. How come I’ve never seen these patterns before? I wonder if the use of hand-painted illustration is part of a new collection. I’m off to investigate, but if anyone knows, do tell!
