Hand sewn? Wow. I honestly wouldn't have the patience to hand-sew everything. The most I sew by hand are pouches for A5 notebooks. Anything larger, and I either don't even try or I reach for the fabric glue.
Sometimes I wish we all still dressed something like this on a regular basis. Such simplicity, perfectly fit to a woman’s body, don’t you think? I also love that adorable little basket! Is there some hemp rope in it??
