Hello, fabric enthusiasts! I’m Tanya from the sewing blog, Mrs. Hughes. I love vintage fashions and wearing retro dresses, but I tend to stick with the “fit & flare” silhouette. I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with the Colette Phoebe — a 1960’s style shift dress/jumper. I wanted to add a detail to this dress without changing the pattern design and its retro style, so I decided to sew a button-on-belt and share how I made it with you.
Hello from the team at Colette! We’re a small company that creates and publishes all kinds of resources and goodies for people who sew.
Since its founding in 2013, Cotton+Steel has become one of the most exciting fabric companies in the industry. Designers Melody Miller, Sarah Watts, Alexia Abegg, Rashida Coleman-Hale and Kim Kight all work together to release five individual collections twice a year and several collaborative midterm collections in between. The fabrics focus on fresh, fun, cohesive color and thoughtful design. By offering both quilting cottons and garment friendly fabrics like rayon and cotton lawn, C+S caters to the multiple interests of the modern home sewist – why not make a quilt and a dress?
