Sew Colette - Some talented ladies

16 comments

I was so excited to head over to the  Sew Colette Flickr group this morning to take a peek at some of your gorgeous skirts! Don't tell my husband/coworker, I looked at all of your photos before I actually did any work. Oops ;) Below I have posted photos of some of you talented ladies.

I love the green shirt paired with her brown skirt. And I never would have thought about pairing the skirt with boots until a few of you ladies made it look so cute.


Meringue Skirt

Doesn't Sarah look like a model? I love how color coordinated she is. The best part about her skirt fabric choice is that it will go with anything.

I know that this doesn't show off the beauty of the whole skirt, but I love the idea of adding a tag. When I was wearing my skirt for the first time I struggled with remembering which side was the front and which side was the back and having a tag will eliminate any confusion. It's one of those "duh" things that I wish I had thought of! :)

Karen looks so classy and how fun is her fabric choice?


Not sure how I feel about the scallops...

I know that Ellie wasn't in love with the fit of her skirt, but I think it looks great on her. Her scallops look perfect.


Since I am obsessed with red and turquoise together I am also obsessed with Lucille's skirt! I love the modifications she made, including the button. Lucille, I think you have good taste!

That wraps up the first project! Before we all get started on the next pattern I wanted to ask your opinions. Did you enjoy the first chapter of the sew-along? Do you have any advice for me or do you wish I had done things differently? Let me know, so I can change how I do things for the upcoming projects if need be. Thanks so much to all that participated!!!!!

  2. Wow thanks for the feature!! It's so wonderful to be a part of such a talented group of supportive women. Having a blast with the sew along so far!

    p.s. Lucille is actually my dog :) But no worries! EVERYONE assumes I'm Lucille. I suppose that's my own fault for not making that very clear from the get go. Sorry!

    Thanks again for co-hosting such a fantastic sew along!

  4. I loved the tips along the way - it gave me the confidence to try the skirt. The lining tutorial was brilliant for me as I would never have figured it out for myself!

  5. Thanks for putting your time and effort into organizing this sew along. It is exactly the motivation I need to sew these patterns up instead of waiting for "someday." I appreciate the community and support!
