Sew Colette: Marvellous Meringues!

Wow! You have really produced amazing garments and I am just tickled pink by everyone's efforts. It was really hard to narrow it down to a few favourites, let me tell you! Below are mine, in no particular order:

Meringue Skirt - Plaid

Alyssa's amazing bias cut plaid Meringue. I am a sucker for bias cut plaid!

Colette Meringue front view

I love Thread Carefully's black Meringue, which is anything but basic! She styled the outfit brilliantly, too.

Meringue 'Petals and Prints'

How about What's Up Cupcake's awesome Meringue, which she's paired with a beautiful Jasmine blouse? Gorgeous!

Kitty Kitty Crafts had me from the start with her fab Meringue. I love how she's styled it (love her hair, too) and that she took her photos in a library!

Look at this lovely creation by our amazing co-hostess, Erin from Miss Crayola Creepy! She is so pretty and effortlessly chic, isn't she?

Colette Meringue 2

How amazing is LuckyLucille's two-tone Meringue? Red and aqua are one of my very favourite colour combinations.

Meringue Skirt with Sencha top

I had to include another clever Colette pairing! I really love nicolatobin's Meringue and Sencha blouse. Well done!!

Last, but certainly not least, Toasty Knits and Sews completely blew me away with her amazingly piped Meringue. Fantastic!
(Not to mention that I am coveting her cool alphabet top. Where did you find that gem?!)

The Colette Meringue Modified - The 'Pavlova'

And I cannot forget to mention this brilliant modified version of Meringe: poppykettle's Pavlova!
Ah-may-zing!!!

I am so over-the-moon proud of each and every one of you!! I am just thrilled to see the amazing quality of garments that you have all made and the little ways you have personalized them.

It is especially nice to see so many of you offering up tips, tricks, and advice to those of us who have needed it. As I have said previously, one of the reasons I love sew-alongs so much is the incredible sense of community and that each person involved brings something special to the table.

Up next? The Pastille Dress!

These are really cute. Thanks for sharing

They all look amazing! I still have a hook and eye to sew on the waistband of mine, then to give it a good pressing before putting it on show. The help I have had doing this first sew along with everyone has really helped me produce a way better garment than I ever have before. Thanks girls.

So pretty! And thanks for including me : )

P.S. The shirt is from Threadless, not sure if they still have that particular one though. http://www.threadless.com/

Thank you for the feature! I really am enjoying my plaid skirt but wow the others are great! I think my summer wardrobe will be including a few more Meringues.

I'm having SO much fun with this Sew-along! I'm looking forward to all of the future projects and meeting new people :)

Everyone's skirts turned out awesome and it feels great to be a part of such a positive bunch of talented ladies!

Thanks for the feature! I really enjoyed looking at everyone's skirts. I'm starting my pastille muslin tonight- I'm really excited for it!

Jane said...

Wow, you must feel like a proud parent! They've all turned out perfectly. I like Kitty Kitty Craft's hair too, in fact I thought it was you at first, you look very similar! x
