I won a fabric bundle from Mood Designer Fabrics on their Facebook page from my Facebook page Love, Stephanie: https://www.facebook.com/LoveStephanieNewman.
The prize included Oscar de la Renta cotton stretch sateen in a white and yellow abstract print, matching yellow lining, Gutermann thread, a matching yellow zipper and a nice Mood tote bag.
I decided to make a little dress from Butterick 6016 pattern view B. This pattern I liked because of the shaped hem and the exposed lining. I cut the the bodice on the fold instead of with the center seam as the pattern is designed to eliminate the center front seam and to be able to have my fabric print continuous.
I really like this simple and easy pattern and would make it again, but I might try making the shape of the hem more pronounced and shaped for a more dramatic effect.
