I’m definitely the girl who gets really, really excited about all of the pattern variation sketches on vintage sewing patterns. There’s just something about the creativity and stretch-your-dollar attitude of those older pattern packages that leaves me feeling smugly satisfied that I’m actually getting my money’s worth. I don’t always feel the same way about modern patterns, but the new Hawthorn Dress from my pals at Colette Patterns has me feeling darn pretty nostalgic.

Hooray for a pretty dress for all seasons plus a flattering fitted button-down top! (And hooray for a pattern that looks just as good in gauzy summertime sleeveless as it does with long sleeves in heavier, cool-weather style!)
