Have you made By Hand London’s #CharlieDress?

By Hand London‘s ability to dream up super-stylish sewing patterns knows no bounds, so we were over the moon about collaborating with them on our recent sew along pattern, named the Charlie Dress after Simply Sewing’s editor (yes, the rest of the team is super jealous!).

In issues 12 and 13, the two-part Charlie Dress sew along takes you through the making process step by step, from assembling the bodice and drafting your own circle skirt, to inserting an invisible zip and constructing the dress. Download the Charlie Dress pattern here.

In need of some Charlie Dress inspiration? Take a look at the By Hand London girls’ incarnations of this versatile pattern (including Charlotte Hintzen’s stunning peplum top), and editor Charlie’s version of her namesake dress sewn up in a classic vintage-look floral print.
