  • Negroni Shirt Review

    Everybody's very pleased with Negroni, the new men's shirt pattern from Colette.  Embarking on a shirt project might seem like a daunting and complicated prospect but all the feedback we've had so far from this pattern has been positively glowing. By all accounts, the pattern is extremely easy to follow and very instructive - you'll learn a lot along the way! If you're thinking of giving it a go, we would thoroughly recommend you read Florence's (Flossie Teacakes) account of the pattern's many fine details. She used some of our organic crossweave cotton fabric and the results are really rather beautiful as you can see....
