The Colette Sewing Handbook Blog Tour!

Hello there. Today I am hosting a stop on The Colette Sewing Handbook Blog Tour for my dear friend, Sarai Mitnick, from Portland company, Colette Patterns. She wrote an amazing sewing book, The Colette Sewing Handbook, which comes with 5 incredibly versatile sewing patterns. If you are in Portland, make sure to go to the fun Colette Patterns launch party this Thursday, Nov. 17.

I chose two of these patterns to style up for you into a couple of my Dream Outfits. Find Sarai’s lovely new book —-> HERE.

First up is the cute “Meringue” scalloped skirt pattern…


Next I chose my personal favorite pattern from the book, the “Licorice” dress


Meringue Skirt: skirt, jacket, blouse, boots, stella mccartney handbag, bottega veneta gloves, alexander mcqueen bracelet, zoe & morgan ring, glasses, perfume, sheer plum lipstick

Licorice Dress: dress, jacket, eugenia kim corinna hat, scarf, boots, handbag, perfume, ruby woo lipstick

Congratulations, Sarai! You did such a great job.
