Sencha – Colette – Pattern Review

Sencha by Colette

Colette patterns are great for the newer seamstress; I made this top in the spring of 2014.  This pattern is fun and has fantastic instructions; it is a great pattern to help increase your technical skills.  I would highly recommend this design if you feel comfortable with darts, facings, and buttons. If not, practice a little, maybe make a Washi Dress by Made by Rea.

I picked up this pattern by Colette named Sencha from Sew Dayton, along with and fabric by Bonnie Christine and called Sweet As Honey made by Art Gallery Fabrics.

This pattern I would classify as an advanced beginner, due to the darts and buttons.  But don’t let it stop you from trying it out. After I made this, I realized the fit was great but not for my body type, so I gave it to a friend.

Sewing will make you look at your body and be comfortable understanding how clothes fit.  One thing I have learned through this process is that I like patterns that are not conducive to my body type. I am still figuring out what flatters my shape. It’s a journey, but one that you will enjoy!
