I bought 2 meters of some gorgeous cotton sateen a while ago and I had so many ideas for it but none of them seemed right Sad

So I'm here to ask all you wonderful craftsters for some help! Please give me some suggestions as to what to use this gorgeous fabric for! Please forgive the quality of the photos. I used my phone camera Smiley





I have 1 meter of the navy blue which I thought would go quite well with the patterned fabric Smiley

I'll try to upload better photos if I can get 'em

A dress! I suggest the dragon dress tute by pinkhickey but there are also some cute patterns out there, like on burdastyle. The fabric would also make a cute skirt or top, and you could have enough left over for a purse, too.

What about New Look 6799? It would be pretty with the contrasting fabric around the neck and waist:

The dragon dress looks a little to form fitting for me. I would actually like to eat while wearing it Cheesy I've seen the ones on burdastyle but none of them really appeal to me. I'm also afraid that the clothing I end up making will look tacky because the print on the fabric is kinda small Undecided

Ooooh, pretty! I love the jacket too! I can't afford to buy patterns now though. My dog is sick  Cry and I'm trying my hardest to save whatever I can

Thanks for the ideas though! And keep 'em coming!
