Amy comes through


I am so crap at taking photos of myself, or rather being the subject of photos for the purposes of this site. Socially I don't mind having my photo taken, but the quality of my self portraits posted here, well frankly it's more than a little embarassing.

Having said that, I am aware that I can prattle on a little much about baking, the girls and my vegies and I do sew, but just don't seem to have as much time as others to stage set my results. So, with that disclosure at the start, yesterday I made my first Amy Butler A line skirt and I have to say, there may well be dozens in my wardrobe by next year. I think it took me an hour tops to make and it's perfect - for me at least. Super easy, exactly the style I like - can't rave enough. Dead easy, a zip so that may frighten true non sewers - but honestly, I am so happy with the results. So happy in fact that as you can see from these poxy shots, it's already been slept in.

Your skirt looks great! I usually don't wear skirts, but now Audrey refuses to wear them too. Probably my fault so I'm intent on changing my shorts-wearing ways. That pattern looks perfect for my needs.

I have this pattern & am desperate for a pile of new summer skirts.....you've inspired me to get going & bare my winter white legs to the world!

The sleep test is an important one!

Oh that turned out beautifully! I have been meaning to make a few skirts for a while now, so thank you for re-inspiring me!
