New project...for me!!

I have decided that I am actually going to make something for myself.

There are some gorgeous Amy Butler patterns around so I have decided to try this one.  Really wanted to have an Amy Butler fabric too but it would have cost too much so I have got this blue floral fabric instead off eBay for a bargain £2.99 per metre.

My mum is a professional dressmaker and sewing teacher, but she is always too busy to make anything for me.  She has taught me well, but find I haven't got the patience for these bigger projects.  I always want things done asap.  I will keep you all posted on how I am getting on!!


  1. thats class!! I bought a sewing pattern over a year ago for a simple apron... still havent got my ass in gear!! I need to buy the fabric! I was thinking red polka dot cotton with turquoise bias....
    Keep us updated!

  2. Wow love it!Was wondering about getting some patterns as I've just bought my daughter a sewing machine for her Birthday I will check out Amy Butler ones,look forward to the updates!beckyx
