I made this skirt for a friend to try out the pattern I made for her. She said she had bought the fabric to make a bag but might not ever get one made. Since we needed cotton to try the pattern she said to just use this one. I dressed the skirt up a little by adding the ribbon down the front seam. And with the leftover fabric I made her an Amy Butler Runway Bag. I’ve had the pattern for awhile and never used it. This fabric she gave me for the skirt is Amy Butler Fabric and so is the dot fabric that I used for the embellishments to the bag. The bag is unique in that the zipper is on the end. You can carry it on your shoulder and unzip it to get inside without taking it off your shoulder. I dropped it all off at my friends house about an hour ago, before she was home from town. Hope she likes it!!
