    These are so pretty – off the top of my head I can think of a couple of vintage patterns – a blouse or two, and then a very full skirt using the remaining ones. Or possibly a summer dress and short jacket. The roses are so beautiful!

    I would love to try my hand at a retro 1970’s style dresses for spring 2011. The color palette is classic!

    My son just got his very first twin sized bed and I’ve been thinking about making a fitted bed cover to just throw on the top, so I don’t need to make the bed everyday. I also need a clean modern look to go with the olive, mustard and orange colors of his room. I love the Metro Living chocolate and celery colors as well as the brown spirograph type print in the Night and Day Collection. It’s so perfect! Of course I would have to make a dress or too also :)

    I’d love to make a spring coat with Night & Day; a sheath dress out of the Metro Living; maybe a shirtdress with the Organic Voile and a flippy skirt and matching bag…and maybe re-cover some shoes with the New Traditions.

    I’d make a skirt with Night & Day and use the Organic Voile under it hanging an inch or 2 below the hem, a sleeveless, full-skirt vintage dress with New Traditions, and a mod 60’s dress with Metro Living. Really love New Traditions and Metro Living. I have sketches done with them in mind already.

    Night and day wants to be a dress and New Traditions wants to be a top. The other 2 fabrics aren’t speaking as clearly yet and might need to age a bit before the correct inspiration hits. There is so much to do with the voile that would include some beading and dyeing techniques to enhance its beauty. Any leftover pieces would be used in quilts. Gorgeous fabrics!

    I’d probably make something completely different with each one, which would be great, since each fabric has its own whimsical personality. I’d definitely make something quirky, like a fun throw pillow, definitely a dress, and maybe use one for the lining of a bag!

    over-dye them to mellow the colors to something more flattering for me (red hair and freckles, lol), then make all sorts of pretty victorian inspired things! i love the “new traditions” fabric!

    wow! beautiful fabrics! :)

    Night & Day – reminds of something rosie the riveter might have worn after a day at work to go out with the girls for happy hour… 40s day dress with a red belt… some contrast trim on pockets and sleeves… so, i guess it would be for me. :)

    Organic Voile – voile always makes me think vintage. maybe a voile blouse or dress with lots of details – pleats/tucks, gathering, etc…

    New Traditions – this reminds me of a dress i made for a friends daughter. i was sad that i didn’t have enough leftover to make something for my daughter. i’d love to make one of those dresses with a coat that matches the lining.

    Metro Living – clearly, i’d have to make something for my son and husband… probably matching bowling shirts or pj pants… :)

    Night and Day: A flowy flirty dress to wear out dancing once summer rolls in. Metro living: A skirt (straight or pencil) with a matching clutch. New traditions: big bags for my sis and best friend Organic voile: Will be incorporated in dresses also with match flowers.

    The possibilities! :)

    I would make a couple of bags, dresses for the squid (I mean kid..:) and maybe something for me. I never seem to get around to making anything for myself. This would give me a good reason too!

    I see a vintage sheath dress in the Night and Day fabric, a Alexander Blouse in the Organic Voile,and a straight skirt in the Metro Living. I am not sure what I would do with the New Traditions, but I will find something!!!! All the fabrics are beautiful!!!!!

    I love the black and white bold theme! I’d make a summer skirt out of the New Traditions and a handbag out of Metro Living. I’d love to do a fabric covered headboard with Night & Day. Lovely fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway!

    With three yards each, I would try a half circle skirt, as well as some dresses and tops. And then I’d use the scraps in a quilt so that none of it was wasted!

    I see a fun Spring wardrobe with pieces being interchangeable and layered. Though I don’t think I’m ready to put the blue print with the black & red ones. Use the voile as the main piece to tie the others together. Say as a simple apron and loose cropped top. What a great simple pulled together wardrobe for a Paris or Mexico vacation!!
