Colette - Hawthorn

Pattern: Colette - Hawthorn
Size: 12
Version: 3
Fabric: 3.4M 45" Lawn Cotton (Harisons)
Lining: 2M 45" Spun Polyester (Harisons)

  • Used store bought bias binding for the sleeves armhole
  • Used my favourite bias binding method for the hem, stitches catching only the underlining
  • Added in-seam pockets to the skirt
  • The facing was hand stitched down with catch stitch.  Can't stand the facing flapping around! Also prefer the raw edges enclosed. 
  • Added snaps at critical areas
  • Added a button at the back of a button for the skirt section since they'll be some stress on the button when sitting 
  • Skirt lining is sewn together with the fashion fabric as an underlining
  • The skirt is a half full skirt and cut on the bias

Had to use white cotton for the pockets since the lining fabric was too thin
