My Turquoise Gingham Hawthorn

Yeah! I’m finally posting on the Monthly Stitch!

This is the Colette Hawthorn made in a turquoise/white gingham.  I’m wearing a light summer petticoat with mine, so it peeks out a little.  This is the third time that I’ve made a dress from this pattern and I usually line/underline it as I’ve used cotton lawn previously.  This time, I just put in the facings and followed the pattern as suggested, which required underthings.  This is one of my most favorite patterns and I’m looking forward to making it again and again!  It’s still pretty warm here in Northern California, but (hopefully) the days will become cool and crisp soon, so my next Hawthorn will be the 3/4 sleeve version out of a heavier fabric which I will most likely have done in time to post again for Frocktober!

PS There are more photos on my blog if you care to peruse it 🙂

  1. I love it! And love the peek of petticoat, too. I bought some gingham for a Hawthorn, but am a bit scared of matching my checks. I think I might just have to go for it, having seen this!


    • Go for it!!! It takes some time to try to match it which is much easier with the bodice and the skirt separately. When you combine the two it gets difficult and I haven’t been able to match a skirt and bodice up completely yet with circle and half circle skirts.


  2. Beautiful version of the Hawthorne, I like this pattern a lot I find it a very wearable looking dress. And, great choice with the large gingham checks. They looks much less ‘precious’ than the tiny checks.


  3. I love the hawthorn pattern and I’ve made several also! Yours looks adorable in gingham. That reminds me that I have some similar gingham in my stash. Maybe I should copy yours.
