Cashmere BHL Charlotte Skirt

Another By Hand London Charlotte skirt. This time in some beautiful cashmere Price of Wales check (that I made my Sew Over It Francine jacket out of) and lined with the same emerald green as the jacket. Worn together it looks like a suit.

The other addition I made to the skirt was to create a hem band and hand stitched the lining to it. I am particularly pleased with my invisible zip and plaid matching skills. Another great bonus is these fabrics have been languishing in my stash box since 2014 after finishing the France jacket. What do you think?

I hand-stitched a black triangle to strengthen the top of the split 

Lined and hand-finished on the waistband and press studs

Added a hem band in the outer fabric 

What invisible zip?
I pledged to take part in the One Week One Pattern this week hosted by Sewisfaction so be prepared to see more By Hand London Charlotte skirts around these parts!

Have you signed up to OWOP17?
If not what would your go to pattern be?


  1. You have some serious plaid matching skills! Perfect I would call that! The skirt turned out great and it looks great paired with the jacket, good job!

    1. Thanks Kat. I am getting better at plaid matching - it takes patience and practice!

  2. Fabulous make, and now you have the full suit. Great matching I get annoyed with matching checks. x

    1. Thanks Sewing Green Lady. I did get rather annoyed at the jacket plaid matching but the skirt was a fairly speedy affair in comparison with only 4 skirt pieces.
