One Pattern Seven Bloggers - Revisited (+Giveaway!)

 photo 1pattern7bloggersbutton.jpg

A little over two years ago, 6 fabulous and talented ladies asked me to be part of their One Pattern Seven Bloggers project.  I was a sewing newbie, and an avid reader of all their blogs (seriously, if you are not familiar with these you need to do something about that!!) so I was honored to take part.  We all made the same Burda pattern and put our own spin on it.  Well, we're back with another challenge:  Colette Macaron!  I LOVE Colette Patterns, so I'm super excited it was the pattern we chose, and I can't wait to see the unique garments my fellow challengers come up with.  I am sure they are all going to be fabulous!

Without further adieu, the wonderful sewists joining me are:
Another incredibly exciting thing is that this time around we are able to offer a huge giveaway thanks to a group of amazing sponsors!

  18. Can't wait to see these macaron's. I have not purchased this pattern yet. I have not seen one made up yet that I was really smitten with yet so it will be really fun to watch. I'm sure someone will make one that I will love out of all of these :) Very exciting. I love seeing a pattern made up into so many different versions. It gives me so many ideas. What fun.

  34. I love all of the Colette Patterns and the Macaron is beautiful! A few years back my daughter found a Stella McCartney dress that had all of the same features that she wanted, to the tune of $600. Needless to say she didn't get it and since I cannot draft a pattern I was never able to recreate it. This pattern duplicates it. I will watch and learn as you ladies create. ksgentry@insightbb.com
