Amy Butler Bathrobe

Yay! All done with my Amy Butler bathrobe. It came out pretty good! A few missteps, but it's only a bathrobe after all and the busy print hides everything! I love it :-)

Shopping spree at Joann's today. The yellow flower print and the red polka dots are for a bag (I also bought 3 different kinds of purse handles and 2 bag patterns) and the blue is for the tank top. I've seen this pattern made up and it seems very simple. The blue has tiny silver threading through it, it's really pretty.

We also went to Fabric Place and they are having a "Black and White Contest" where you sew something up in black and white. I have been looking at some New Look patterns and I think I'm going to make either this or this. I want a pretty black dress!

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day!

Ok, I am a real newbie here. I am renewing my interest in sewing. I have to make a gift for xmas and I thought about starting with something easy. Perhaps a bathrobe? I love the fabric and pattern you used. I hate to be so virgin like here but I have never heard of Amy Butler or her patterns or fabric. Any suggestions on where to find them?
