Did I say no more gown fabric until next year?

21 Mar

Welllll…..maybe that was premature.  I saw some lovely fabric in the clearance rack the other day and had several highly positive reactions to it so…..

This is a lovely turquoise organza with flocked flowers.  It is begging to be made into a ballgown!  At least one of the salesclerks at Fabricland was coveting it, but graciously though sadly let it move into my fabric stash instead of hers.

Tossed the closest fabrics I had at hand underneath to see the effect:

I had been seeing it with turquoise stretch satin underneath, but the dark blue shows some promise.

The pink is pretty wild!

    The white and pink are pretty, but I really like the effect on the darker blue. Would it work with a really bright lime green, do you think?
