I’m a sucker for nice packaging. I love the way the Colette patterns come in little books with a stitched binding and a pocket at the back to hold your pattern.
I’ve become so spoiled with the level of detail found in the O + S patterns, so it is really refreshing to find adult sewing patterns that have a similar attention to detail. I also like the thorough tutorials on the Colette blog. I used the tutorial on how to insert an invisible zipper to make the Ginger skirt (Colette 1016). I’ve sewn in my fair share of zippers, but I need all the practice and help I can get, so this tutorial was much appreciated.
For this skirt, I made version 3, but kept the tree pattern on the fabric going horizontally instead of making them into a chevron.
This was such an easy and quick skirt to make. I’m sure I’ll be revisiting this pattern again soon.
