Colette

A chance meeting with the owner of Colette Sewing Patterns set off the creative flow for a collaboration to develop hand knitting booklet and individual patterns in Colette’s unique style. The hand knitting patterns knit and developed included a Chevron-yoke pullover, a double-breasted cardigan, a raglan tunic and striped collar designs. While the collection never made it to the public, the experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Execution

  • Produced a digital portfolio with sketches, knit swatches and technical garment outline for each garment.
  • Wrote hand knitting pattern directions and schematics for patterns.
