Amy Butler--let me count the ways...

I made this skirt yesterday from Amy Butler's Barcelona Skirt pattern. Not a very illustrative photo, I know, but it makes my feet look small!

Anyway, I love her patterns. They are easy to follow and easy to manipulate to suit your needs. Thanks to a collaborative purchasing effort (with Megan) I have several of her bag patterns, but this is the first piece of clothing I've made. Someday I'd like to make this dress, but I think I'll need a better equipped sewing situation (i.e. a mannequin for fitting, full-size ironing board, etc.) before I'll feel brave enough to make a whole dress.
