    All of them are awesome, but the ones I keep getting googly-eyed over are “The Lotus Tunic & Cami” in addition to “The Mini Dress, Tunic & Tops”! They’re just way too cute and with so many possibilities! I also love how they’re cute, but really modest. :^D

    I would go with Liverpool and Lotus! Everyone needs a great-fitting blouse (and I LOVE the example photos!), and Liverpool has so many ways it could be altered. I could shorten it, lengthen it, change the sleeves, oh the options! And the retro styling of Lotus is just too cute, especially with the buttons in the back :D

    The Liverpool and the Lotus Tunic… mostly because those patterns both look like something I might actually wear after sewing it! We love Amy’s patterns and fabric… would love to win!

    The mini dress tunics and tops, along with the Liverpool patterns would be terrific to win. I actually began sewing after seeing some of Amy Butlers’ fabric at a little quilt shop outside from where I live. Being so inspired by the vibrant cloth and dramatic patterns, I was immediately compelled to learn to fashion up some things to make for myself and my family. From totes to tunics, her patterns have made a full fledged sewer in me. Having these added to my collection would not only keep my wardrobe up to date, as I have been living on a very fixed income after falling I’ll to MS and having to leave my job of 16 years; but also nourish my newly picked up love of sewing with the ease of her uncomplicated patterns. MS seems to take your cognitive thinking and throw it to the wind! And I’ve found Amys’ patterns to be relatively simple and concise. And for someone living with a disability like MS, that is always a God send.

    The liverpool shirt is perfect for a casual look, with jeans and a t-shirt. And I would wear the sandlewood jacket with a nice dress for a romantic and femenine look.

    I’m digging the mini-dress, tunic, and tops and the lotus tunic & cami patterns. Both look so great for spring and summer, I love the shapes of each.

    I adore The Lotus Tunic & Cami and The Mini Dress, Tunic & Tops, they would be perfect for Philadelphia summers. Plus, they’re so versatile! And perfectly shaped for my body type to boot~

    I want to win The “Reversible Sandlewood Jacket”. It is a very classy, comfortable look! I also would like to win The “Liverpool” so that I could take it with me to the office to slip over my summer clothes. I get cold in the office and this would be great made up in many different weights of fabric, plus the length altered for different styles and weather! Thank you for the entry!

    The Liverpool and the Lotus; I love easy styles like tanks, shift dresses, and tunics. These would be a great intro to AMH patterns for me, as I already love her fabrics (ESPECIALLY the voiles).

    i love all the patterns but i have to say that The Reversible Sandlewood Jacket is my favourite. i love the versatility of things. This pattern is so simple and sophisticated. 2 jackets in 1. wonderful. And my second favourite is The Mini Dress, Tunic & Tops, cause it’s so easy to wear, it’s fresh for spring time, and it’s a pattern that’s work’s for leisure and relaxed times or for the office.

    ‘LOTUS TUNIC & CAMI’ and ‘SANDLEWOOD JACKET’ are my favorite. I am in love with the cut of ‘LOTUS TUNIC & CAMI’ and how it’s shaping the body perfectly. I am really interested in reversible clothes and I am curious about the process of making them.

    My favorites are the Lotus Tunic & Cami and the Mini Dress. I love the neckline of the Lotus tops and I think my daughters would look adorable in the mini dresses.
