Rainy Days and Little Splashes jackets by Amy Butler

For a lightweight jacket option that shelters you from summer showers, look no further than Amy Butler’s two new patterns. Her Rainy Days Hooded Jacket for women and the Little Splashes jacket for children are both stylish and funtional. They are also the perfect excuse to try her new line of laminated fabrics in bright prints.

And while you’re making your own rain gear, try covering your own custom-made umbrella to match following our online tutorial from Threads issue 145 by Sandra Ericson. For more information on sewing rain-appropriate attire, check out “Sew Fashionable Rainwear” by Claire Meldrum in Threads issue 148.

    I have found Amy Butlers patterns very different and I like very much ,I have made four of her Weekend Travel Bags,they are not easy but very handy and nice.
    she has a talent that others like myself wish we could do

    I don't know about anybody else but her designs are a dream and her patterns are a nightmare!

    In looking at the laminated fabrics, I do not see a location where someone can purchase them retail (not wholesale). The link provided is a wholesaler.
