You might remember I posted about some fabric I bought at Walthamstow market some weeks ago. Here’s what I did with it.
I’ve seen a few of these sewing plan posts pop up and thought I’d get a piece of the action and join in. I’m so excited to share with you my planning and making lately, so read on for more…
Oh By Hand London, your patterns have stolen my heart once again. I rediscovered this gem of a dress over the festive period and forgot how much I loved it (and how I’d forgotten to blog about it).
What couldn’t I love about this pattern? It’s made from a Liberty print fabric (same as here in fact, if you’re wondering), it has a well-fitted bodice, a high neckline AND a circle skirt. It’s even lined in a beautiful muslin type fabric from Cloth House.
I haven’t made an Anna dress for a while. The By Hand London pattern is one I’ve made once before but when I stumbled upon Elisalex’s pattern hack to add longer sleeves, I knew I had to give this version a go.
Let me begin by saying that this is my go-to skirt pattern for a simple skirt that can be made in a few short hours. I love its a-line shape and I love the length – it hits me just above the knee which is a style I love. Plus, it’s sixties inspired and pretty much works with plain or printed fabric.
Can you believe I’ve actually tried to write about this pattern quite a few times? I’m not sure what happened but each time I wrote a post I was never quite happy with something and so I have a backlog of posts about the Tilly and the Buttons Delphine skirt.
