Colette Patterns

Friday, May 28th, 2010

I am so excited that we are now carrying Colette Patterns! This amazing pattern line is designed by Sarai Mitnick in Portland, OR. Sarai has been sewing clothing for 12 years and she developed Colette Patterns to help others create their own signature clothing. Visit her personal blog, Sweet Sassafras, for amazing sewing tutorials and inspiration!

From their website comes this beautiful mission statement:
“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.
