- Colette Sorbetto tank top (free pattern here): details of the first two, the second two, the third three, and there are even a few more hanging out in my closet (such as the Galaxy sorbetto!). This is an extremely easy and versatile top.
- Colette Madeleine bloomers (free pattern here): I’ve only made a muslin so far, and I think I prefer looser shorts to wear around the house so I may not make these again without major alterations.
- Colette Laurel dress and blouse (pattern here + free extras): I’ve made one Laurel blouse (details here).
- Colette Zinnia skirt (pattern here): I’ve made two Zinnias so far, one of which you can see here. The other I altered to have an elastic waist so that it would be comfortable for hiking.
- A hand bag inspired by the Colette Cooper bag, and a matching clutch.
- A silk slip (free pattern here): extremely comfortable and easy to make. A perfect project for someone who hasn’t sewn silks before.
- Colette Moneta dress (pattern here): a perfect knit dress that I’ve made with and without a cowl neck. And also a maxi version (perfect for maternity wear!).
- Colette Mabel skirt (pattern here): three versions, only one of which is wearable, but that’s my own fault for measuring incorrectly and being opposed to actually wearing mini skirts. More recently, I also severely altered the pattern to make a longer, looser version in black organic cotton jersey.
- Another bag, this one for baby things.
- A pair of Manila leggings from Seamwork in a lightweight mystery jersey blend.
- A pair of Geneva panties from Seamwork in undyed organic cotton jersey.
There are a lot more projects in the works though. Here are some other patterns I have that haven’t become garments yet:
- Colette Negroni button-up shirt for Peter (pattern here).
- Colette Anise jacket (pattern here + detailed sewing companion).
- Sewholic Thurlow trousers (pattern here).
- Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing Pencil skirt (from Gertie’s book).
- So, Zo… Camisole/tank (free pattern here).
- Maria Denmark Kirsten Kimono t-shirt (free pattern here).
