Some of this year’s haul. I will make a dress up from this fabric.
The crossword fabric for the body of the dress, the green for a sash. Sure, it’s unusual, but it’s not obvious, from a slight distance, that the dress fabric is anything other than an a-symmetrical check. And, since grey is neutral, I can change the look by changing the belt. For example, with the green fabric, shoes like these would look good:

Of course, before I sew up another dress, I have to first sew two pillowcases, my Indian-Blanket Flower skirt, and probably a mock-up of the dress pattern I want to use. But it’s fun to plan. Sometimes I think I have a touch of the dreamer in me.
Now, I’d better go sew up a pillowcase.
