I was very excited to start the Colette Hawthorn, but then picked a fabric I wasn’t in love with and received a care package with a ton of new fabric and patterns that distracted me, so I admit I dragged my feet with this project, but the sewalong deadline helped a lot in motivating me to finish. It was fun following the sewalong and I’ll definitely use certain tips for my next Hawthorn (such as the wide shoulder adjustment) – with a better fabric!
