    Ceylon would be a fun a flirty addition to my wardrobe, but the Beignet is so classy and work appropriate. Colette is so talented I can never pick just one!

    I love my several Sorbettos I made this summer, but for an all season garment, but my pick would have to be a Beignet skirt for sure. …Altho I am always tempted by the Macaroon dress…

    I love the Colette patterns, it is so hard to choose. I think I would choose the Lady Grey Coat. I would love to sew a coat, but I am a little bit scared. The Colette patterns have such a good fit and are very good explained so I think I could manage it. And I love the look of that coat.

    Nutmeg! It’s too much of an indulgence buy to justify right now, but with a gift certificate… :) whoo-hoo!

    I’ve also got my eyes on the Eclair dress.

    I love Colette Patterns! Lately, I have been really wanting to try out the Beignet skirt, it looks so flattering on all body types. The Chantilly dress is quite lovely – so I would like to add that to my sewing queue.

    If we exclude the patterns included in the giveaway, I might get the Parfait dress to wear over a long sleeved top, since it’s getting colder.
