    I would buy the Beignet! Who can resist a skirt with pockets, gorgeous buttons and being able to use any belt you like? Awesome!

    All of them are so nice, but the Jasmine is my favorite by far!

    dEFINITLY the Macaron Dress… I envision horse print fabric for the main portion of the dress (carmel in color with black horses) and black lace for the shoulders and top… I would also get the Macaron men’s shirt so I could sew some shirts for my Boyfriend :)

    The lady grey coat. It’s gorgeous!

    Definitely the Eclair or the Ceylon would be the patterns I would choose!

    I have a wedding coming up and I think Eclair would be the perfect dress for the occasion. I don’t have $18 US to spend (my currency is $6.4 to $1US) so that’s actually $115.20 for me which is too much for a pattern but if I won the gift card, the patterns and the book, I’d be ecstatic. I’d finally be able to sew as much as I want to and not worry about choosing between patterns and fabric!

    Either Oolong or Lady Grey – hard to decide between those two! My absolute favourite look by them is Crepe, though. :-)

    My favourite is Ceylon and rooibos. I’m à beginner and love the mad men dresses. I’d like to make some for myself.

    I have been loving the Lady Grey coat for ages now so would probably pick that. However the Negroni mens shirt would be great for my guy, so i am divided!

    I would buy Peony. It is such a beautiful classic dress!

    I’d make the Macaron dress. It’s so sweet and looks like a pattern my skills could handle!

    Rooibos, I’m really into making dresses right now.

    Definitely the Macaron! Every girl needs a dress with pockets, those patterns are so hard to come by recently.

    MACARON! Because I think I’m better at sewing than at baking Macarons…but both will result in something very sweet.

    I wanted to get the Lady Grey for quite a while, though Violet and Jasmine are very tempting, too. It would certainly be a hard choice.

    Definitely Lady Grey! It’s still missing in my collection of Colette Patterns…
