Not long ago, Colette Patterns launched two brand new patterns aimed at beginners. One is Violet, a gorgeous blouse with a cute peter pan collar, and the other one is Ginger, a cute simple A-Line skirt. I initially resisted getting these as I have way too many patterns on my stash, but a couple of weeks ago I gave in and order them from M is for Make. I also ordered the Beignet Skirt. I already had the fabric selection in mind for all these, some from current stash and some that I bought in Hungary ( a post of my fabric finds still to come), but hadn't planned to sew them straightway.
Then, I had a string of mishaps with my jacket and other projects and decided to halt them for some time. This still stands. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and suggestions, it means so much to me to have them. Some of you suggested turning to other crafts or doing something simple and as I was reading some of the comments, I stumbled across the newly named A Fashionable Stitch, by the lovely Sunni and discovered she is about to lead a beginners sewalong, using the Ginger skirt. Need I say more? I know I'm not a complete beginner but an easier project is what I need now and I do love sewing along with others.
