Lovely. Colour, collar, everything. And it's a perfect fit.

I'm making a deer and doe datura with this fabric at the moment (also scored at 40% off post xmas!) - I love what you did with yours ;o)

PS. Was in a rushÖ Re buttonholes. Getting the bust one is critical, as youíve learned. I never fully rely on my buttonholer to make a perfect buttonhole. There are so many variables such as type of fabric, shape and thickness of buttons, interfacings, thread, stitch length. I always make a sample one using the same fabric and number of layers. Once I get it right, the next work fine. Perhaps they make a magic buttonholer now, but mine have never been good without making samples first.

Collette patterns are showing some great results here. It goes to show what fabric and color can do. If this is your first semi or half circle skirt, Iíll warn you - You will LOVE it. They are so flippy, fun and flattering, yet they donít get in the way of whatever youíre doing like gathered or full circle skirts do. Canít wait to see your next one.

I agree, this is a really lovely Hawthorne. The contrast collar is very nice, it gives this a fresh look that is very flattering!

Your dress is gorgeous. I love the contrast collar.

Very pretty dress, and the fit on you is amazing. You're right--horizontal buttonholes do help with the pulling when you're full-busted.

Beautifully done! Great fabric choice, and a really nice job of fitting/finishing.

This is the neicest version of the Hawthorne I've seen! Bravo!

I would have never thought about purchasing the Hawthorne, but your version looks so beautiful that I might need to consider the pattern. Your fit is spot-on and I love the color of that fabric.
