Amy Butler skirtSaturday, February 07, 2009Johanna
Since I was looking for some instant gratification I decided to make the skirt first. It turned out pretty nice I think. Actually I can't take much credit since it's really the print who makes this skirt. The print is from Amy Butler's Lotus collection and has a wonderful colour combo. It's a pretty bold print, but still somehow subtle since the colours go so well together. The quilters get the best prints, that's for sure. Although I'm not completely in love with the hand of the fabric, it's a bit coarser than normal dress fabric cotton. It's perfectly fine, don't get me wrong, but I can feel that it's primarily designed for home dec rather than clothing.
The lining is cotton voile.
