I sewed something!!





I have been wanting to try one of the Amy Butler patterns but wasn't sure which to try. I'd get on my favorite fabric-porn shops on-line and just couldn't decide. Then I discovered a local (even better!) shop that carries only Amy's lovely fabrics and patterns. I chose the Anna Tunic and some gorgeous brown floral fabric and got started. It was a bit complicated for my sewing skills and several times I had to turn off my music and re-read the instructions (what the HELL is "understitching"?!) but I finished it and it turned out quite lovely, if I do say so myself.

Unfortunately, with my body-type (NO WAIST) I resemble a refridgerator when wearing it...a large, brown-floral refridgerator. But I'll wear it with pride because damnit, I MADE IT.

It's lovely! Now why don't you sew a beautiful apron (or two) that you might have a pattern for! Wouldn't that be fun!

kate said...

Oh. Um. Yeah. Hmmm...where ARE those patterns?

See, you can't give me an assignment or it feels like work. I have to be INSPIRED. I'll finish 'em someday, I promise!! :)

I SAW it on you and it was adorable. I complimented you on it before I even knew you made it! You did a great job, and looked CUTE in it.
