For me, I think this book may be the most exciting publication of the year and anticipation levels are high. Why? Because every time I use a Colette Pattern I learn something new; because the shapes used in creating the garments mean that they don't just cloak the body, but sculpt around it in a way that leaves me awestruck at her pattern cutting skills; because all the tips and tricks on her blog are so informative; because every time I look through the Colette Flickr pool I feel inspired. The Colette dress and top patterns don't especially suit my figure (without substantial adjustment - they tend to be cut for a much bigger bust), but there's something about them that leaves me feeling fascinated and a little addicted.
The publication date in the UK is set for November 25th, presenting a small reason not to mourn the passing of summer too much.
All this reminds me that I must finish the belt loops on my Colette Beignet skirt so that I can share that with you too....
