Amy Butler now as quite a catalogue of beautiful sewing patterns suited to different levels of sewing skills. There are sewing patterns for bags, appropriate for all different needs. There are all kinds of gorgeous, versatile and extremely stylish sewing patterns for skirts, tunics, halter tops and sun tops and now she's added patterns for jackets/coats.
This is 'little splashes hooded raincoat & runabout jacket' sewing pattern
and this is the 'rainy Days hooded raincoat & runabout jacket' sewing pattern.
The jackets together....
If you want these jackets to be waterproof then you will need to make them from a laminate fabric. What do you do, however if you really love the jacket but aren't so confident about working with laminates? Amy suggests making them from the heavier home dec fabrics for an extremely stylish extra layer to wear on cooler days.
Whilst we're on the subject of home decor fabrics I've just added these to the shop. They're all 100% cotton on a 54/55 inch bolt as opposed to the more usual 44/45 inch wide bolt and are perfect for bag making, making curtains, upholstery, cushions and of course Amy's new coat designs.
I love the deep gorgeous blue colours in these fabrics. The colour of the Sun spots is almost electric.
The pretty Asian inspired Sandlewood in Ivory fabric with it's soft, feminine colours and up-beat contemporary design.
Looks good combined with Tumble Roses.....
I thought it might be helpful to see the size of the Sun spots home dec fabric next to the Sun spots quilt weight fabric because the home decor fabrics spots are larger.
.... just in case it's critical in your sewing project....
