Remember this goofy photo?
Well, Caitlin emailed me a few weeks ago via flickr and asked if I would like to be a Featured Seamstress on the Colette blog! I have to admit I'd forgotten about it, and when I was scrolling down my reader this morning, it was kind of a shock to come across my own face!
If you're interested in sewing and aren't reading the Colette blog, you really ought to be! And if you've come over here from the Colette blog, welcome! It's no secret I'm a big fan of Sarai, Caitlin and the brand. My new favorite thing is the outfit/styling posts (a la Polyvore) Caitlin has been doing lately, showing different ways of styling Colette garments. Genius!
Speaking of Colette patterns, I'm slowly working toward making the Peony dress.
I've traced the size 2 bodice pieces and will be making a REAL muslin this time. I want to get the fit just right. But I'm taking my time; Hubby bought me The Colette Sewing Handbook the day it came out, and I've been reading a little bit each day. I think I will have to do a fair number of adjustments with this pattern, so the information in the book will be invaluable. Sadly, I don't think I'll have any time for sewing until after the holiday.
But - I have finished the back of my 1958 sweater! I started the first pocket lining, but ended up spending much of my day yesterday editing an article for my brother-in-law, after which we headed over to our local jazz club to hear Kenny Barron. And after that we went out to get Indian food. Mmmmm . . . curry!
