Sew Colette - Pastille Parade!


It's the Pastille Parade Day! Below I have posted photos of some of the talented ladies from the Sew Colette Flickr group.

Pastille 2
Karissa Jo from KittyKittyCrafts looks amazing! The color is so pretty and those pleats turned out perfectly. The background behind her is cool too!

My Pastille Dress
I've featured Rochelle from Lucky Lucille twice now, but I can't help it! I love everything she makes... and secretly want to become her BFF! :) Don't you love the changes she made to the dress? My favorite part is how she made a collar from the facings.

The 'Pastel Pastille' Dress
Christine from What's up Cupcake? is another person that made some awesome modifications to the original dress pattern. She added some lace to the bottom pleats that peak out just a bit. You will have to check out her blog for the closeup photo. Check out her blog anyway, she posts some amazing sounding recipes!

Pastille in progress
I know that it's not quite finished, but I wanted to feature Symon's dress. This is the first fitted dress she has made and so far it looks really good!

Polka-Dot Pastille
Rachel used such a cute fabric for a perfect spring dress. Couldn't you imagine yourself wearing this on a sunny day of wine tasting? I know that I could.

Thank you to all of you who participated in this chapter of the sew along! Are you having fun? I know I am, I'm just so happy to have made a couple of garments and it's still the beginning of the year. Thank you all for motivating me to stay on track :)
