I have been literally hiperventilating for the past half hour, theres a women who livess at the end of my street who offered to let me have a look through her fabric stash because she feels bad not using any of it. Very exciting at the best of times, but i found out that she knows this place where you can get the cut offs of designer fabrics from the collections, one day a yeah on discount. Anyway, along with alot of other beautiful quility fabric she gave me 3 meters of matthew williamson spring 2007 fabric... pure silk... beautiful print... i have never been so thankfull in my life, i cant belive she would give that away!

Anyway, now that i have the fabric i'm thinking this dress from the collection, the other in this fabric is too floaty and swishy for my taste but i think this is adorable!

So so cute! Any ideas on where to start? I'd say i was an intermediate level sewer so i might be able to (end up) makingmy own pattern for at least the top part if i cant find anything.
The fabric is really see through, i think i'll have to put another layer under it for it to be decent.

Any advice is appriciated!

holy cow, you lucky woman. I think you should try and make that dress. It is so cute.

Fashion, art, friends, life....

God's thunder spits fire...and sends the oak trees dancing, a wild dance, whirling; the pelting rain strips their branches. We fall to our knees-we cry out, "glory".

The dress looks pretty easy, I wonder if it'd be possible to find an existing top similar to that (a grandad-collar blouse maybe?) and just add the tube of fabric to the bottom?
