Sew Colette 2.0: Peonies in October
Oh, I love, love the Peony pattern and am so delighted that it was chosen as our project for October. Last fall, I made a cozy warm pink & black plaid version, which was on heavy rotation throughout the cold months! I am planning another cool weather version for the sew-along; however, for participants in the Southern Hemisphere, Peony lends itself to warm weather just as easily. Take a peek at Lladybird's summer gingham version! Stopping by the Colette Patterns Flickr group is another way to get your Peony inspiration flowing!
We are especially excited to announce that Harts Fabric will be our sponsor for this month's project! Stay tuned for more details on discounts and a wonderful giveaway from the lovely folks at Harts!
The Peony project schedule is as follows:
Week of October 1st: Sew-Along Kick-Off (Muslins, measurements, etc)
Week of October 8th: Fabulous Fit
Week of October 15th: It's All About Fabric!
Weeks of October 22nd - 31st: Be Our Guest
Week of November 5th: Peony Parade - be sure to upload your finished dress into the sew-along Flickr group!
We are always delighted to welcome guest bloggers, so if you are interested in writing about your Peony, please contact us! See you on October 1st!
Of note, this will be our last pattern for this year, as we all need time to prepare holiday gifts! We'll pick right back off where we left off in January 2013!
