Originally, I wanted to make a Crepe, but I can't decide on fabric. I want to make it more casual so that I can wear it more often. Austin is not a get-dressed-up type of town. Rarely do I need to wear anything more than a sundress to be considered "dressed up." Even then, I'm still overdressed.
Also, I really, really want to make a shirt dress. I have the Lisette Traveler dress and the Amy Butler Liverpool patterns. I don't know which one I like more.
|Or this one?|
I do know that I want this next dress to be either navy, brown or eggplant (or plum). I'm interested in solids not so much prints. I find that although I love a lot of the cotton prints I've seen, I would not want to wear them.
Most importantly, I want this to be a cheap project. These dresses require 3 - 5 yards of fabric, not including any lining (if I choose to use lawn or voile). I can't really afford to splurge on fabric that's $10+ a yard. In fact, if I can find nice fabric for around $5 a yard that would be ideal.
Argh. Decisions, decisions.
Time for bed. I'll obsess about this more tomorrow.
