I've been there a month and this week we are starting to sell Colette Patterns! YAY! So I got to make a dress for display to promote the new (to the store) pattern line. I chose to make Crepe, the classic wrap dress, I love every version I see and couldn't wait to make my own. I used two different Amy Butler quilting weight fabrics from her alchemy line. I love the blue floral, its so gorgeous and springy!
I did a straight size 10, with no alterations, (isn't it crazy when that happens?).Since this dress will be on display for a while, the pressure to sew it perfectly was on, I used french seams throughout, for a neat finish. This is another great pattern from Colette, it's crazy how many times I have sewn something from this pattern line!
So have you ever worked for a fabric store? What do you look for in your local fabric store? What do you wish you could find? Do you follow any stores on social media?
