I made a rhyme! I have been going quite mad with the Colette patterns lately, this is the most recent of them (although the first one to be posted). I am really happy with it. I was a little worried about how loose the fit would be, but I actually think it’s really flattering. I added length at first, but ended up hemming it up to the drafted length anyway. That Sarai, she knows what she’s doing!
I salvaged the buttons from an old J Crew sweater that I had worn so hard it was pretty much made entirely of pills.
