Oldie but Goodie- My Hawthorn

I thought I’d share with you today one of my favorite makes, the Hawthorn from Colette patterns!  I made this one what seems like ages ago- but actually just last June, as part of the Hawthorn Sew Along over at the Coletterie, before I started blogging.  I took some new photos of this dress when Ami and I were out at the Naples Botanical Gardens last week to …
