Having spent recent months at By Hand HQ armed with some tough looking pattern cutting tools, covered in reams of paper and lengths of thread, we're pretty far on our way to having a new pattern to share with you soon. The photo above is a little shneaky peak at our spring baby, the Victoria Blazer! You can't see so much of her face here, but Victoria came on board pretty soon after the start, as pattern & design assistant - and general right hand woman (avid readers of our blog may remember her larking about with us on our very first photo shoot). She designed this blazer and it's turned out very nice indeed, we think. They're now off to our testing panel, so hopefully they'll agree!
And here's where we need your help. We really want to hear from those of you who have made the Charlotte Skirt and/or the Elisalex Dress patterns and think that there are things we should add, take out or quite simply change completely (for example, we've noticed a lot of you have already asked for finished garment measurements and metric conversions). We really want to make our packaging and instructions the best they could be, which basically means... making it how you want it! So, ladies, let us know. Holla at us in the comments below and give us some food for thought.
