I've been watching Coletterie, but it has popped up on Pattern Review first:

Colette Hawthorn

I like the idea of a shirtdress with a half circle skirt instead of gathered, and the option of shortening it into a cute peplum top. I'm not completely sold on the neckline shape though - it's different, but not sure if it's a "good" different...

However I will admit I immediately thought of Papercut's La Sylphide pattern (http://papercutpatterns.com/products/la-sylphide), which is fresh on my mind because Lladybird posted her version yesterday.Chambray La Sylphide

I'm looking forward to seeing the versions of this pop up! I predict it will be quite popular and I might pick it up myself if others have good results with it

I love the neckline - it's different in a interesting, "vintage" way. At least to my eyes! I'd be a little annoyed if I was Sarai though - having my thunder stolen by PR!

I don't think I like the neckline? I'm gonna wait to see what this looks like sewn by others before I drop any money on it.

I think it's my subconscious not wanting to sew any button holes.

I don't think I like the collar. I'm just not a fan of collars in general...
I put a picture of the pattern envelope in MS Paint and erased the collar, and it was pretty cute, but not enough for me to pull the trigger just yet. I have other patterns on my mental queue that excite me more at the moment.

I think that spoiler was a faux-pas! No way should PR have jumped the gun this morning.

That said, if I could get over my fear of buttonholes, I really love the sleeveless version...

I know this is always a touchy subject but for me personally its so nice to see it on a model with some curves. I can actually envision what it might look like on me.

The collar is growing on me and I think it would be flattering.

I am seriously considering it.

I like all of the views. I bought it.

And I agree that I like seeing the dress modeled by a curvier model.
