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?

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
