30% off today, books, and new gift bundles!


Today only: We’re having a Black Friday sale to welcome in the gift season! Just for today, you can get 30% off on all of our patterns. The sale runs until midnight PST.

ETA: The discount is applied at checkout, so you’ll see normal prices in the shop until you reach the payment page.

We also have a brand new gift bundle added to the shop! For $50, you can get a signed copy of The Colette Sewing Handbook and two sewing patterns of your choice. These bundles will be available throughout the holiday season.

There are also signed copies of The Colette Sewing Handbook now available in the shop. We actually have a limited quantity of these in stock, because I’m going on vacation and won’t be able to sign more until mid-December. So get your orders in early!

Brilliant! my cart is already containing 3 patterns, and I have to think about getting the beignet. Thanks for making my day!

Thank you! Jasmine, Peony and Chantilly are ordered! Can’t wait to get my hands on them, Jasmine in particular…


Thanks! I can’t really afford it at all, but have just bought macaron, ginger and sencha :)


what a great offer! you are very naughty ladies-tempting me in this way! what does the book do to delivery costs particularly international ones? I only seem to be able to find costs for the patterns on the site-perhaps I am looking in the wrong place!


The book will count the same as a pattern toward delivery costs for now. :)


Thanks so much for a great deal!! Does the discount come off during checkout?


Yep, you’ll see the discount reflected when you put items in your cart and go to check out!

Claire (aka Seemane)

Yay! I’ve been wanting the book – and a signed copy would be wonderful :) So, I’ve just ordered the bundle. I do so hope it reaches London, UK before Christmas (hehe pressie to myself!)


Yay! Awesome deal! For anyone wondering, the discount is applied during checkout :)


Yay! I’ve been eyeballing the Macaron for a while… what a great reason to finally buy it! Thanks! :)


Book, Clover and Eclair ordered!


a bargain too good to resist! thanks :)


Thank you for the generous offer. I’ve ordered 3 to add to the 5 that came with the book!

Is the Black friday only for American customers? This very tempting Cinnamon is still $16 in my basket (it’s 10:30 PM in my country, but I thought we were earlier than you)!


Sorry for the confusion, Carlotta. You’ll see the discount once you get to the payment page!

Carlotta Stermaria

Gah. Since it was pretty late in France, I played ukulele, forgot everything about it and went to bed. Well, I guess Cinnamon will have to wait untill Christmas or the next promotion!

Thank you for your answer anyway, Sarai. I hope it helped some other confused souls like me!


So the only shopping I did on Black Friday was for myself! I got the book + pattern bundle! Thanks, Sarai!

Samantha Schuller

Thanks! I am adding 5 new patterns to my collection–early Christmas present to me. ;)


Just the excuse I needed. I’ve been dying to try some of your patterns, but I was trying to be nice to my budget. Now I can have it all – Colette patterns and a nice break for my budget! Woohoo! Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to you!


It might be too late to ask a question, but does the Holiday Bundle qualify for the sale?


Wow, what a wonderful offer. Great early Christmas Gift. Thanks!


Darn it! I was traveling & missed out on this deal. Would you consider offering it again? (pretty please?)


Hi there! It’s Sunday here is Hawaii…just saw the 30% off promo on the homepage. It ended on Friday? Is that correct? Or is it still going on? If it’s still active, please let me know and we’ll place the order. I’ve requested the bundle for christmas! :)


I love this site and the pattern, but i want to know if your book will be available in french or your pattern one day… and also Is the Black friday only for American customers? did we have to pay international tax in our country when we receive the gift. Thank you for your site.


We do not have a French translator for our patterns at this point, though it is my hope that someday we will. As for the sale, it applied to everyone, but I’m afraid it’s over at this point. As for taxes and customs, you are responsible for those when you receive an order. Unfortunately, there is no actual way for us to take care of them, or even know what they’ll be.

You may want to look at the ordering info section of our site for questions about the order process.
