By Hand London Mittens skirt


At last we can share our little secret: we've been pattern testers for the new By Hand London Mittens skirt! It's a big day for fashionable pets all over the world. 

I made view B, the high waisted midi skirt. It's a highly versatile pattern. Excellent for sunbathing:


Or wear it as a maxi skirt for city trips.


Once again the BHL Circle Skirt App proved to be a very useful tool for drafting a 'maths-free' circle skirt.
The seam was pinked and as you can see the pattern includes a sewing label.


What changes would I make? As you can see below there is some risk of wardrobe malfunction on breezy days. Next time we'll go for view C, the pencil skirt.


Finally. On behalf of all canine customers of By Hand London the furry assistant wants to protest against marketing the Mittens skirt as a cat-skirt-only. Come on, girls, don't do that to our doggies!


But today she's wearing her skirt with pride.
