    While I love Lady Grey, I would actually get Negroni so that I could make shirts for my husband and son.

    Lady Grey is my favourite, but I already own that. I’ve recently bought Sencha, Eclair and Parfait as well. So I think macaroon is next, but I’m very excited for the upcoming spring and summer patterns. We’ll see!

    I would get the dress pattern Eclair. Going into summer here down under (though you wouldn’t believe it at the momentt) it would make the perfect dress to take to the beach, to wear to a friends BBQ or even to wear to a special occassion.

    I really love all of the patterns, but I’d love to make some lingerie. Nutmeg is such a sweet retro lingerie pattern. I’d have a ball making it and doesn’t beautiful lingerie make everyone feel special?

    Hard to choose! Colette Patterns has added so many new patterns to it’s collection since I was last on there site a month ago. I think I would either buy the Violet blouse or Ceylon dress. Sew lovely!

    I think I’d go for either the Sencha or the Clover. The dresses are beautiful (the Ceylon is especially charming, IMO), but separates just seem to work better for my lifestyle.

    Definitely the Rooibos. For the collar area and piping you can use colors that POP!
