1970s style Beignet

A Beignet skirt from Colette Patterns, made in a bright blue denim which reminded me of the 1970s, with amber-yellow buttons and thread, and facings and pockets in a floral cotton. I’d highly recommend this pattern and will definitely be making it again. More on my blog ;)

    Lovely! I’ve never sewn a Colette pattern before, but I have been looking at that one on their website. Might have to try it after seeing yours!
