New Fabrics for Colette Hawthorn Dress

Here are some lightweight, cool, 100% cotton fabrics that I can use for making a Colette Hawthorn summer dresses. Now that I have made the muslins for two uniquely sized women, I’m anxious to start sewing up the real thing in a fashion fabric of their choice.

Colette’s Hawthorn shirt dress or blouse with peplum looks like this.

Here are five different fabrics that would look awesome in this style.

Which is your favorite?
