Colette Sewing Patterns, Hawthorn Dress
Turn heads in this curve-hugging classic that combines gamine styling with a flattering and feminine fit.
A semi-circle skirt provides volume without the extra bulk of pleats or gathers at your waist, so you get a clean, streamlined look that's still beautifully feminine. The bodice is fitted with waist darts, while still providing just enough room to keep things comfortable.
While a flat collar and fitted shape give Hawthorn that late 1950s charm, menswear-inspired details like the sleeve cuff and placket lend classic touches that never go out of style. You'll be wearing Hawthorn year round, easily styling it with belts, cardigans, and jewelry.
Version 1 is a short sleeved peplum blouse, which pairs perfectly with a pencil skirt or our slim Clover pants. Version 2 has 3/4 length sleeves with a cuff and menswear-style placket. Version 3 is sleeveless, with armholes finished with bias tape inside (so no annoying facings poking out).
