I arrived home this evening to find the Amy Butler sewing patterns and fabric I ordered last week. My co-worker (who is lightyears ahead of me in the sewing world), convinced me to take on 2 new sewing projects using the lovely Amy Butler as a guide. We ended up choosing the Barcelona skirt and an adorable rain coat we just couldn't pass up. They seem a little (actually a lot) past my sewing skills but I love any opportunity to learn new things and to whip out the new sewing machine. Plus my lovely co-worker knows what she's doing and we've planned some after-work sewing parties to create these together.
