Cute! The CF seam on the blouse would bug me, but I'm guessing they did that because it's cut on the bias.

I really like all of them, and might need to get all of them. I think the blouse is my favorite.

I like the blouse too, and yes you need that cf seam to make the bias hang evenly.

I like them all, too, although I'd need to alter that neckline on the dress to make it more open.

The cigarette pants seem like they might be an office-friendly alternative to leggings for some of my long tunics that don't look right over trousers/jeans.

Those pants look very cute, but I suspect they would like shideous on my body.

The only one that has any real possibility of looking OK on me is the blouse. But I'm not a fan of bias cut garments.

The dress is not bra or boob friendly.

I'm too curvy for the pants, esp. since I think I see the back waistband curving downward on the slim model. The tight cut would do my lumps no favors.

Overall, I'm really just not the Colette demographic.

I'm definitely in for the blouse and the dress.
The pants I'm also too curvy for - but having said that, I've been pleasantly surprised with some of their other patterns after seeing them made up, so never say never!

OMG I actually really like all three of these! A lot!

I can't believe we're getting new patterns here AND in the upcoming Colette book! :)

I just saw these the other day. Love the dress, but really not for me. The blouse looks very nice, will have to give it a try.
