    At the moment, i would go for “Violet”, but would make the sleeves a bit longer

    Hope I am not too late, it was a busy day yesterday! I think I would put it towards Chantilly and Clover.

    Macaron? or Sencha? Maybe the Crepe, Clover? Oh honestly, I would just get a bunch and take the certificate as a ‘bulk’ discount! I don’t have any Collette patterns in my stash, other than the Srobetto and Bloomers of course!

    Ceylon for sure and probably pay the extra for Crepe as well.

    Definitely the Sencha, since I’m dress rich and blouse poor.

    I’d buy the Chantilly dress, but if it was available again I’d go for the Sencha blouse. Both are lovely!

    Hmmm….I really love the Lady Grey, however considering I live in Texas, I would find myself wearing the Jasmine more often, so definately the Jasmine the neckline is perfect for me and the style is very light and flattering.

    Wow…the’re all so cute! I’m thinking I would get Lady grey, but I really liked Ceylon :)

    I would definitely buy the macaron dress pattern. I have had my eye on it for about a year but it is so expensive to get it sent to South Africa.

    I’ve already purchased Clover from Colette Patterns…I can’t wait to make it! I’ve yet to find “the perfect” fabric for it. And, I really wanted Ceylon at the time, but didn’t have the funds, so it’s most likely what I’d buy with the $25 gift certificate. Woot woot for another great giveaway!
