The Colette Beignet skirt… with an added bonus of frying up some Beninese Beignets as well. The perfect mix, fried street food and a skirt! This was also my first time making bound buttonholes, and I am in an instant convert because they are a contrast lover’s dream! I don’t have a zig zag stitch on my machine so it only makes me love bound buttonholes even more.
