Woohoo!  It’s Christmas already!  We just received a new shipment of Colette patterns.  Both of her new releases are dresses.

Claudette is a classic sheath dress with the option of a cowl neck, a classic scoop neckline or V-neck.  It also has ruffle cap sleeve or long sleeve options.  Of course, as with almost any pattern, you can mix and match design features to make the perfect dress for you.  I really like the green cowl necked, long sleeve dress that they show both on the website and on the pattern package.   Talk about classic!  Perfect for that Christmas or New Year’s function.  If only I could get it sewn for then.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other new arrival is Prudence.  This has an Asian feel because of the mandarin collar (that is the description on the back of the package although to me it is more a funnel neckline since it is not a separate collar piece).  It has a waistline with the option of a straight skirt silhouette with pleats and side seam slits (sexy!) or a gathered skirt option.  The dolman sleeves is not the most flattering style for my body shape.  I have a short waist and broad shoulders so dolman sleeves make me look like an American football player!

 

Both are available in our webstore.  What do you think?  Are any of these dresses of interest to you?
