Textile love: Mara Hoffman 2017

Loving the piecing used in these pieces from Mara Hoffman’s Resort 2017 collection. This would be such a great way to use a print that’s available in different colorways.

Sarai started Colette back in 2009. She believes the primary role of a business should be to help people. She loves good books, sewing with wool, her charming cats, working in her garden, and eating salsa.

I love the effect too…but can’t imagine putting in the hours matching those prints up. I would have to approach it as a zen exercise, like making a chalk drawing on a sidewalk, because the number of wearings I would get out of it would be pretty small in comparison to the time and effort to do it right. To each her own though.

I Love it . I think it would be worth the time to figure it out. The satisfaction of knowing that I can do it, and expand my creativity at the same time.
