Friends, the world is ending.
Hug your kids, eat that extra piece of pie, kiss your crush, make that ostentatious blouse, visit that fancy restaurant you've been oggling but avoiding because of money. I'll meet you at a big bonfire on the beach. BYO wine and cheese.
How do I know the world is ending? Well it's the only explanation for me making a fitted skirt and not having to make one alteration to the pattern.
Obviously the world is ending or By Hand London is playing some kind of trick on me.
Speaking of By Hand London, the women who run this new independent pattern company are absolute goddesses and you should buy this Charlotte skirt pattern. Making it was a breeze and now I'm buzzing to try the Elisalex dress (have you seen Oona's versions?!)
I followed their easy, informative sew-along including lining and hand-stitching, even blind stitching the hem (the world is ending exhibit B). I'm so glad I did because dammit if the world is ending, I am going out in style.
