Oh, I was practically cartwheeling with excitement when I saw Hawthorn! What an amazing frock, no? And so versatile, which is what we have come to expect from Colette Patterns. I have to tell you that I have been unsuccessfully searching and searching for a shirtwaist dress pattern with no luck. Several yards of fabric have been sacrificed in this quest, sadly. But, no more!
I am really looking forward to the Hawthorn sew along and wanted to share my plans with you. I am going to make version 3, which is just perfect for summer. As it is such a spectacular pattern, I felt it deserves an equally spectacular fabric:

I was pretty excited when I saw this fabric collection at Hawthorne Threads. The prints remind me of Rochelle and her lovely sense of style.Now I know there is a school of thought out there that quilting cotton is not suitable for apparel. I heartily disagree! My clothes need to be durable, as well as pretty, and I've found nothing better wearing than quilting cotton. Plus, I just love all the prints you can choose from. Me, I'm firmly in the Quilting Cotton for Clothes Camp.
Are you making Hawthorn? What version? What fabrics have you planned?
