I wanted to let you guys know about the theme for the week February 28th since -- if you decide to do it -- will require some extra time for shipping. Colette Patterns is going to be our first sponsor! We are going to be sharing our Spring palettes and we will each be making a dress from the Colette Patterns line. CP was nice enough to create a 15% discount code for Sew Weekly readers: SWSPRING The code is case sensitive and is good for 15% off your entire order excluding shipping.
I'm sure a number of you already have a Colette Pattern in your stash, but if you don't, this would be a great time to try them out. If you are unable to buy a pattern for some reason but can't resist participating, CP has this free bloomers pattern to download:
thanks Mena, that's really thoughtful. May give the crepe dress another whirl but I still need time to sort it because it uses 5 yards of fabric!
Thanks Mena for the advanced warning.. and a special thanks to Colette patterns [Sarai], for the discount.
I have the crepe pattern and am working on it now.But I will go and order another pattern while on sale..
You know we cant resist the sales.ha thanks, Judy
I've just ordered mine! I think the Crepe pattern is going to be very popular ...
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things will get here ... or bloomers it will be! I daren't model them though!
Anyway, on a serious note, sending all best wishes to everyone in New Zealand x
Diane, you can get Colette Patterns in the UK from www.sewbox.co.uk - that's where mine came from although it was a Christmas present from my brother (thank you, amazon wish list - at last I get stuff I want!)
I am thinking of making the bloomers anyway, they are hysterical (or they would be on me!). Luckily the rest of you have nice figures and are less addicted to cake so you will look alot better than I would!
And finally, well said Diane, my very best wishes and thoughts to all of you in NZ as well x
