Winter is coming, and I can feel it in my hands.
I don't know if it's a result of growing up in the damp and drizzly Pacific Northwest, but my hands can't stand New York winters. The dry, biting cold air sucks every drop of moisture from my skin, turning my hands into cracked, scaly lizard claws.
You know those pieces of clothing that you wear as often as (hygienically) possible, and you still find yourself missing them when they're in the laundry? Well, I made one.
Introducing the Madeleine Skirt from Victory Patterns, or, as I've been calling it in my head, the ultimate farm girl skirt! This is my second serious foray into sewing for myself, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
You guys. I made a dress! An actual dress! Like, to be worn out in public and everything! And I sewed it! And it has buttonholes, and pockets, and a collar, and plackets, and interfacing, and all sorts of other fancy, intimidating sewing stuff. Which I sewed!
I'm just a little excited.
