A summer skirt

I took the plunge into the Amy Butler Barcelona skirt this summer and I was not disappointed.  What a fabulous design, and it fits perfectly (I cannot believe it).  So comfortable, easy to make and it actually looks OK!  Many of you would know this is not often the case with the home-made clothing line.  In fact, this is the first item of clothing I've sewn that I have ever been totally happy with.  Such a relief because I really didn't think I could trust the pattern measurements.  How wrong I was.


 I've used for the exterior this beautiful lightweight cotton by Tula Pink for Moda (Neptune deep sea range).  It feels great and hangs nicely.

And this is my new handmade resin necklace from the lovely Alex of Polka Luka.  She has an exhibition (and fabulous sale!) on now at the Front Cafe & Gallery, Lyneham, Canberra.  If you're a local or passing through, don't miss it.

Have a great week!

(ps.  Giveaway is now closed, so stay tuned for the winner and some more Christmas thank you's to my readers)
