Sew Colette - Croquis


Have all of you been following along with Sarah's blog? She has posted some awesome tutorials that will help you with sewing your muslin for your Pastille dress. She went over making shoulder adjustments, full and small bust adjustments, and making a croquis and dressing/sewing for your body shape. How awesome is she for posting all that?!?!?

I have yet to make my croquis, but it's going to happen. I have this dream of mixing and matching patterns on my croquis and then attaching fabric swatches to the paper. If I do all of this on the same size of paper I could then have it spiral bound into my own personal inspiration book. How cool would it be to have a custom book that you could flip through for ideas?

Some great tutorials have been popping up online. Personally, I love Lauren's. She guides you step by step through the creation process, so there is no confusion at all. When I make mine I will be referring to her blog :) If you have questions about dressing your croquis then I recommend Mikhaela's video tutorial. She shows you how she draws the dress outline and digitally puts her fabric swatches onto it.

Questions about fitting your muslin? You can always ask Sarah or I. Remember that the Sew Colette Flickr group is a good resource too! If you have already made a croquis please feel free to upload the photos.

  1. I adore your book idea - genius! (thanks for the compliments, too)

  2. I made a croquis a little while ago, and have started playing around with drawing different styles on it - it's sort of addictive!!
