Handmade Charlotte


Halloween has us feeling nostalgic for days gone by, which is why we're bringing you stories on vintage clothing, timeless costumes and some seriously adorable kids' coats. They're by Handmade Charlotte for Anthropologie and feature classic silhouettes with charming details. Can they make them in adult sizes, please?

Handmade: Getting Old?

That's what the New York Times is saying, at least. Some people, it turns out, are tired of seeking out handmade and vintage objects to decorate with. We say: More for us, then! What do you think?

Handmade Costumes: Yay

We've grown tired of the trite roundups of, shall we say, obviously unseemly Halloween costumes. Which is why we were happy to see this news piece on how handmade costumes are catching on among kids and grown-ups alike. This Little Red Riding Hood and wee Strawberry Princess? Too cute. Will you be making your own costume this year?

Sewing Catches On?

We're always hoping for a sewing trend to kick off the same way knitting and crochet did in the past. But still, no dice. However, there's hope in the form of small groups who are getting together to teach basic sewing skills for newbies, like Brooklyn's Sewing Rebellion. We think that the emphasis on mending rather than executing challenging patterns might win over more people, so thumbs up to them.
