This is fun! A book I worked on last fall is now available to order! Sarai, the owner of Colette Patterns, just wrote her first sewing book! I am so excited for her. Sarai has such a distinct brand and it was a pleasure to be invited (along with photographer Lisa Warninger) into her world for a few days.
We had such fun sorting through Sarai's studio and closets for props. She has some wonderful vintage pieces. I created the sets and did a lot of the prop styling in the book. Thanks so much to Rich Wipf, Carlie Armstrong, Samantha Shorey, and Amber Furqueron for all of their help.
You can order The Colette Sewing Handbook right here. Check out Sarai's blog for more details. Congrats, Sarai!
