Red is the colour

Yesterday a large envelope plopped onto my doormat.  It contained a lovely package wrapped in tissue...

Inside, was 2 metres of GORGEOUS bio linen with some ribbons
Isn't it beautifully presented?

Long time readers will definitely agree that this is my colour, however, it is such a nice fabric, I shall definately be investigating other colours in the range!

It came from Dragonfly Fabrics, (btw, have you seen the new range of winter fabrics over there?) and I cannot wait to make something from it .. it's quite a nice heavy but soft linen which I happen to have been lusting over for months and wondering about the properties of.  I think will be suitable for autumn/spring wear and I am currently fancying it in the form of the new Peony dress from Colette Patterns. 

What do you think?

Gorgeous! Red is a great colour, I love it. And I think it will look gorgeous as this dress.

When I saw the first photo I thought "I recognise that tissue!" and then the lovely ribbon everything is tied up with - they do gorgeous packaging!

That linen is to die for, lucky you! And it will look lovely in that slightly structured style too (and with some of the neckline embellishments they suggest on their blog). Have you seen the new patterns in their new Colette Sewing Handbook? The Pastille dress might look nice as well.

Red is such a wonderful colour and should make up beautifully into the pattern you've chosen. Can't wait to see it!
