Colette Patterns is an amazing sewing pattern company founded by the lovely Sarai Mitnick. Fusing vintage sophistication with modern clean lines and simplicity, Colette makes the sewing patterns we've all been dreaming of! I was lucky enough to visit while Sarai and sewing intern and counterpart Caitlin Clark were working on two new patterns; Violet and Ginger. You can see Violet in its beginning stages below! The Colette studio, located in southeast Portland, is full of lace-y trimmings, ribbon, thread, buttons, light, and all the fabric you can imagine, making it the perfect sewing dreamworld to construct such lovely patterns in. Colette also features a wonderfully helpful sewing blog - detailing inspiring designers, fabric descriptions, and sewing tutorials by Sarai, Caitlin, and fellow intern Rachel Rector. Their hope is to get people sewing, showing the way with patterns that are easy to understand, but nonetheless chic and impressive. You can purchase these fantastic patterns through the Colette Patterns website as well as in person at local fabric boutique Bolt.
