I was thinking about this earlier and everyone I know has one pattern that is totally tried and tested and is something they make over and over again.
Mine would obviously have to be the Beignet skirt from Colette. I've made it twice and am going to make it a third time! Same goes for Simplicity 2601! Which is almost in its third incarnation!
So whats yours?
I have only made 3 patterns more than once, and they are all Colette too! I have made 2 Sorbettos, 2 Crepes and 2 Gingers. But I still don't think I have found The One. I like all 3 of them, but I have no plans for a third go at any of them....
I have three more Colette patterns that I haven't even made yet, I bought Violet and I just gor Macaron and Parfait for my birthday, maybe it my TNT will turn out to be one of those ;0)
Well that has sealed the deal - it was on my FESA pile as a maybe, now it will be a definite! I will put Violet on my "to do" pile x
I think you will like it.. as Stevie said..It does run a little big..but I find that the colette patterns are a little bigger than the big 4 pattern companies ..[I say YEA.... makes me feel like all this ole dieting ..might be helping.lol].. Good luck with your FESA pile.
I have a hat pattern that I've made about 5 times for myself plus twice as a present.
I made Burda Young Nr 8174 and had two more idea for this pattern, but it's a summer dress and there simply was no summer where I live this year. Maybe next year.
Im about to make my 5th dress!
