My Spring Palette

Since this week's theme at Sew Weekly was sewing with Colette patterns...I decided to do a spring palette.  I know I'm a bit behind but it looked like a lot of fun and I've been really inspired by everyone else's palettes.

So here it is:
I'm inspired by bright, bold colors for spring.  Like a glass of red wine (yes, please!) or freshly mown grass or cherry blossom trees in full bloom.  You'll notice I included a pattern I've already made...ahem...I always do that with lists, include something I've already done so that I can tick it off right away! hahaha :-)  But to be fair, it is in the color palette.

For the Sew Weekly theme this week, I've been sewing up the Colette Parfait pattern.  I know I'm supposed to be making blouses to go with my separates not separates to go with my blouses but I've been dying to make up a 40's inspired pinafore for awhile...  pictures coming soon.

Can you believe it's March already?

  2. Oh good, I'm not the only one who adds finished things to my 'to-do' list! Makes you feel good when you tick it off though doesn't it?! x

  9. Oh I so need to do this to sort out what I'm going to make if the warmer weather ever makes a comback! Blossom is definitely going on my palette.

  10. Several days into March and I STILL can't believe it!

    Love your palette. I can't wait to see what you do with Parfait. That ended up being the other dress pattern I picked from Colette (along with Crepe). I have always loved pinafore styles but don't have any patterns representing that in my admittedly modest-but-growing pattern stash, so it's my first one. :)

  11. Just seen your Parfait on Sew Weekly and doesn't it look lovely! As someone who often needs an FBA with modern patterns (not vintage ones, strangely), I've liked that pattern from a distance for a while but have fears about how to manage the bust bit of the bodice. Did you find it generous/ easy to fit? Sorry, it feels rather odd asking someone to go into details about bust fitting, but it's a dress I'd love to make if it isn't too complicated and doesn't require too many muslin fits!
