What kind of fabric did you use? Cotton lawn with a Liberty-style peacock print. The collar and cuffs were tea-dyed lawn.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I like to wear cotton prints with strong graphics and bright colours. I think this must be my substitute for not having tattoos as well as an antidote to living under predominantly grey London skies. I deliberated a long time before making Jasmine as I was worried my graphics wouldn’t work with the centre bias seam. Once I finally took the plunge, it worked brilliantly.
What thoughts do you have about the project? Jasmine and Iris are my first two Colette patterns. I think they’re great projects for those who feel ready to move on from the “Beginner” skill level by trying out small adjustments for a better fit.
