My Version of the Laurel + I’ve Neglected the Change In Season


You know word vomit made famous by Mean Girls, right?  This post is going to be my word and picture vomit about fall because it’s long overdue, and that’s what girls do–gush about fall.  Although, I hate Pumpkin Spice Lattes, a modern girl’s first, and arguably most beloved, fall staple.  So, there’s that and I may not be a girl after all.

In my last post I mentioned that I’ve been working on my first dress made from a pattern produced by an independent company, and I am so excited about the finished product.  It’s a shift dress that is just what my closet was missing for the fall.  This Colette pattern, the Laurel,  has very easy-to-follow instructions, and I’m thinking that I would find the same to be true for all of their patterns.

Pattern: The Laurel by Colette Patterns // Fabric: Free Spirit Dena Tangerine Ikat Medallion Orange // Boots: similar found here

The Coletterie is the the blog that goes along with Colette Patterns and is abounding with advice, tips, and glimpses into their studio.  I felt like I was getting lost in a sewing rabbit hole as I was going through it, but I certainly wasn’t complaining.

In other news,  my October has been splendid.  It included Mid-term break which was much needed.  Enjoy this photo montage of some moments from my October.  It’s been a crazy one and I’ll be sad to see it go in 3 days.
