Anyone working on the patterns from the new Colette Sewing Handbook? I am working on a "muslin" for the licorice dress, but since it is turning out so well, I decided to line it and make it into a real dress. I'm almost finished, but am planning to make another in wool crepe. Anyone else out there working on Licorice - or interested?

My next project is the Clovers. Would you be willing to expand your sewalong to all things Colette?

Sure, why not? I finished the Licorice Dress! Going to write a review, but here's a peek:

That is so cute! The dress is so pretty on you and the print is festive. (You look great... Have you been working out?)

I am working on Clovers. I am not sure about Licorice dress, but would love to exchange thoughts on other Colette patterns.

Thanks, Marec. Yes, I have been working out and dieting. I have lost 15 lbs and would like to lose 5 more. My goal is to lose BODY FAT and I really am less concerned with the scale #. I'm proud of myself for not "blowing it" over the holidays, but now it's time to get back to some serious work
I finished a pair of Clover's yesterday. You can see the review here.
There is still a little tweaking to do, but this version is straight from the envelope with NO changes. Yahoo!

licorice looks great on you, fantastic job! I have the Colette book out of the library and am going to buy my own copy when it comes due.

I have the Colette "crepe" dress pattern OTW, it's an easy wrap dress that should work with my still-nursing top-heaviness. It is my one big to do beginner goal this year ( that and learn to use my serger!)... I'll post some reviews and pics too when I get the first one done...thinking it could take a few tries
