If you’re anything like me, you might find your love for Colette Patterns reaching epic levels these days. First they unveiled their fancy new blog makeover, then they announced the upcoming Colette Sewing Handbook, and then yesterday they revealed their Fall Palette Challenge 2011! So imagine the peaks of joy I reached today when Sarai revealed the Fall 2011 collection! Oh, boy, is it fancy and fun!
Have you SEEN these??? In a word: adorbs.
Tell me how I’m supposed to say no to this! How cute is the tie blouse? I’m not sure if I’m bold enough to wear the cigarette pants as they’re a bit more figure-hugging (or “snuggy”, as my mom would say) than what I usually wear, but dang if I’m not tempted to give ’em a try!
I LOVE this dress. The color is perfect, the style is so sweet, classic, and flattering, AND, it’s named after my favorite flower! I need this in my life!
Sadly for me, I have a MASSIVE sewing queue going right now (did I mention that I am now making a bridesmaid dress for my sister AND a dress for my mom to wear to the wedding in addition to my own??), so I have to hold off for a bit before making or buying these. BUT, I’m so excited about these patterns that I want to share a little love with YOU GUYS, so I’m offering the first ever Ginger Freebie! Leave a comment below if you’re interested in winning one of the new fall patterns, and I will select a winner at random (with some sort of fancy robot computer generator gizmo). Just let me know which pattern you’d like in your comment, and if you like, include a little bit about what you’re thinking as far as fabric, color, etc!
The catch: there is no catch! You don’t have to follow the blog, subscribe, or wow me with your javelin-throwing skills. You can pick any of the three new patterns, and I’ll pre-order it for you (international shipping is fine). Let’s cut this off, oh, let’s say a week from today, Wednesday, September 7th, 2011 at 11:59PM EST, and I’ll draw a winner as soon after that as I possibly can! Eek!! I’m so excited!
