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.
