Colette Patterns is one of the best known independent sewing pattern companies today and I am sure you are already pretty familiar with this brand and their very successful pattern, the “Moneta” dress, released last year. Founded in 2009 by Sarai Mitnick in Portland, USA, Colette Patterns have a distinctive classic design with a retro feel. Patterns are aimed to teach and develop new skills, while making something lovely at the same time. Each pattern comes with a special booklet with detailed instructions, well designed graphics and there are tutorials and sewalongs available on line. And this may interest you: they have recently added French translations for some of their patterns including the newest pattern, the “Dahlia” dress!
