Celebrating Indie Patterns - April - Colette PatternsBy AlexisW on 4/2/14 1:24 PM

We are happy to have Colette Patterns as our Indie Pattern Designer for the month of April!

Inspired by vintage styles, Colette Patterns have a classic look reminiscent of the past. In our chat with Sarai, founder and designer of Colette Patterns, she describes her love of designs from the 1920s through the 1960s. Flattering on many figures, they can be easily mixed-and-matched to create unique outfits.

To celebrate Colette Patterns, we’re giving you the chance to win some fabulous prizes! For the month of April, this contest will be to sew up a Colette Pattern and post a new review for each project. The more entries you submit, the better your chances at winning!

Celebrating Colette Patterns 

1. In the month of April sew a project using any of the Colette Patterns.

2. Write a new review on PatternReview with at least one photo.

3. Copy and paste a link to that review on -

Contest ends April 30th Midnight EST



1. Why three places?

Because it increases your odds of winning!

2. Can I sew more than one project?

Yes of course. You'll just need to write a new review for each project, even if you use the same pattern. Again, this increases your chances of winning.

3. Can anyone participate?

Yes! Forward this to all your friends. As long as they join PatternReview (free membership will suffice) they qualify.

4. What are the prizes?

Two winners will receive a pattern bundle containing two new colette patterns for knits & an e-Book sponsored by Colette Patterns.

5. How will the winner be decided?

By random drawing.


Not sure what to make? Check out a few member favorites!

I can't even imagine how much time running this site must take her. <3

... and time for the next Indie feature. ;) Surely Deepika has no life but PR (she says coyly).

I don't have any Facebook or Twitter account, so I guess this is the only place I can register. Still fun.

fourkid, we will have these entries. No need to post again.

My review for the Laurel as a top. I also posted the link to the review on the Colette FB page and the PR FB page. Do you automatically have those entries - or do we need to let you know where we link them?

I love Colette Patterns. They are wonderfully designed and packaged. Their sister site, Coletterie, is a great site for information. I found this indie pattern company when I participated in the Hawthorn Dress Sew Along, which I reviewed here on Pattern Review. If you haven't tried one of their patterns I suggest you do. You will be as excited as I am about this pattern company.

Sadly, I don't have her book yet :( It's on my Amazon wish list, though! But... hoping I can get at least two things made this month. So excited. Edit: I bought the Hawthorne and Zinnia patterns just for this contest!
Deepika said... (4/6/14 10:58 AM) Reply
@cascadia you can make any colette pattern. Even the ones from her Book.
cascadia said... (4/5/14 3:08 AM) Reply
LOVE Colette Patterns. I have a few including the Negroni, which I think I'll be trying to make for this. Do her Walden patterns count? I think the Negroni is one of them, so I'm assuming so. How about the Cooper? Does it have to be clothing or can we make that bag, too? Looooove the pattern and I've been wanting to make it for awhile.

@UglyCute, you don't. Just blog is fine too. But the more places you link to, it increases the odds of winning.
UglyCute said... (4/3/14 1:46 AM) Reply
Do you have to post on all three? I don't have a twitter account and don't plan on getting one any time soon.

Oh, my! These could be a double whammy in the contests running this month. The Sorbetto for the Terrific Tanks Challenge contest, and the Hawthorne, Hazel, Laurel, and Lily (at least) for the Fashionista contest. Several of the dresses I've seen during my searches (for the fashionista) resemble those patterns.
