7 Colette Patterns Dresses in 7 Days!

Superwoman Mena at The Sew Weekly just announced her plan to make 7 dresses in 7 days from the Colette Patterns catalogue (I don't know why I spell that word the English way and not the "catalog" American way, same goes with dialogue).

I figured I'd spread the word because (A) it's a crazy idea, but if anyone can do it, it's Mena (B) to prove that she's making each dress on the day she says she is she's invited readers to vote for the fabric of each dress ahead of time. A little community fun as we watch the madness unfold! Oh, and (C) I may be the only one to notice, but ever since starting this blog in January I have blogged 3 posts each month, what the heck?? May is going to the month I post, dare I say it, 4 posts! Thanks Mena for getting me to post 2 - the countdown begins!

But Mena's countdown is far more interesting so head on over and vote ;-)


  1. Isn't it a fabulous challenge? My goodness she is a sewing warrior as someone else posted....I'm still working on this week's challenge EEEP :)

  2. She is an incredible lady and possibly slightly mad- I don't know how she is going to pull this off, but I am sure she will! I starting thinking about an Oolong about 3 months ago and haven't even bought the fabric yet!

  3. **Debi: I still think what you're doing, one garment a week, is the work of a superwoman too! I just hope Mena ties next week's challenge into this Colette one, but somehow I feel like she won't...

    **monkeysocks: You're doing better than me, I started thinking about the Oolong last year when I bought the pattern and I only got around to making it a couple months ago :) Don't be like me, it's too cute a dress to pass up on!
