whimsical handmade wednesday :: colette patterns

"Colette Patterns’ mission is to help you create clothing that feels both beautiful and personal. While it’s all too easy to find cheap, cute, disposable clothing meant to be worn for weeks or months and then discarded, making your own clothing is an entirely different experience. It’s something cherished, something chosen, something entirely you."

"These patterns are designed to be made into clothes that you will love forever. They are timeless, beautiful designs that can be made in a variety of fabrics to suit the season. They are wearable, practical, and pretty."

Colette Patterns come with full instructions, and are available in sizes 0 to 18.

A lover of vintage styles and beautiful detail, Sarai Mitnick has been sewing clothing for 12 years. Finding a dearth of modern sewing patterns for design-oriented sewers, Sarai developed Colette Patterns to help others create their own signature clothing. Her background in the User Experience world gave her a passion for creating patterns that are themselves beautiful and easy to use. Visit her personal blog, Sweet Sassafras, for more.
