A large yellow envelope was inside my letter box this afternoon.
Inside it was Nutmeg.
My first ever Colette Pattern.
The pattern envelop, well, I had never seen anything like it! Gone was the traditional boring white envelope folded at the top. Instead, this Colette Pattern envelope was more like a folder, made from vintage-look cream card, with soft pink print and side stitching detail that I discovered held in place the instruction booklet.
I wouldn't normally go so silly over a pattern envelope, but the attention to detail that has gone in to creating this envelope, well, it deserves some applause :-) For those of you who have not yet purchased any Colette Patterns yet, here is a peak at mine...
I have printed out the Colette Pattern's lace tutorials for the Nutmeg pattern in preparation for sewing this. Now I just need to find the perfect fabric and lace combo...
Has anyone sewn this pattern before or something like it? Any suggestions on fabric choice?
