These two go together like blinis and caviar! Pair Colette’s Sencha Blouse with this geometric silk from Britex Fabrics. Rated for beginners, the vintage influenced Sencha sewing pattern has a discreet je ne sais quoi that only flatters the sedately boisterous silvery silk. Sew this up over the weekend, and be prepared for moonlit adventures. To make it all even sweeter, this diamond patterned silk is now 50% off in our newly created half off fabric section!
After getting our first shipment of patterns from Colette, we’re officially going steady with each and every one of the Portland Colette folks! These patterns are awesome; each pattern comes with a handy book that in includes beautifully clear and concise step by step instructions and drawings. The actual pattern is folded into a pocket in the back cover, and some patterns include additional online variations. The Clover pants pattern is made for beginning sewers. Classic beautifully simple slim pants with a side zipper – they would be oh so groovily Mad Men meets Kerouac made up with Britex Fabrics’ vintage-inspired Italian cotton/lycra puppy-tooth olive and mauve stretch cotton.
We’re pleased as punch to be adding Colette patterns to our in-store and online collection. Born and created in Portland, Oregon, Colette patterns are known for their design details and vintage inspiration. The designs themselves are often inspired by the past, but constructed to be modern and wearable. Each is easily adapted in a range of versatile fabrics, are available in modern sizes 0 through 18, and have practical details such as pockets. Each pattern comes packaged in a beautifully printed booklet with fine linen-textured cover and stitched binding. Instructions are clearly illustrated, and each includes a glossary of sewing terms and special area for the sewer’s own notes. We will be adding more styles next week, and will carry their entire line.
