Fabric from Gorgeous Things Fabrics I bought it tonight

Inspiration from Anthropologie

Another piece I purchased from Gorgeous Things Fabrics and the top from Anthropologie, I will probably do a different neckline. I bought some solid black jersey knit from Needle Nook Fabric for this and another project.

I have a brown/aqua/cream jersey knit from Gorgeous Fabric for a wrap dress. It might be this Butterick, I sent Anne at Needle Nook a swatch and she matched the aqua perfectly. So I might use the aqua for the sash, what do you think? I also have the New Look wrap dress pattern

Or the fabric could be this dress, I have the Duro dress pattern from Butterick.
I think that is all for now, I have more fabric and patterns but will save those for a later date. Any suggestions on the dress? I am going to start that first and maybe it will be done for Easter. All clothing photo credits are Anthropologie.
Oh, one last thing, check out this sight, great inspiration, Frugal Fashionista, I am not much of a star watcher but I like this sight to get ideas.

    What great fabrics and ideas for future projects. It will be interesting to see the final results.
    I especially like that black and white top. So cute.

  5. I love Anthropologie for inspiration...definitely don't want to buy at those prices! Thanks for the link, too. I think I have that same Duro pattern. For the dress just decide which one would fit your body best and wear more. Have fun sewing!
