Stylin' Fabric/Pattern Inspiration

Another outfit, inspired by the Tessuti fabric giveaway contest at BurdaStyle (heh heh heh, it's after contest deadline, don't want to add more competition, eh?). My entry is Tessuti Antique Teal fabric sewn up in the Fatina dress pattern:

If I don't win, I may just buy this fabric!! This fabric/pattern combo is getting really attached in my mind.

Sources of the stuff:

Fabric: Tessuti Antique Teal cotton fabric -- use border as hem

Pattern: BurdaStyle Fatina dress

Shoes at

Satchel at -- carry backwards, don't like the front for this outfit

Copper earrings from Etsy seller discomedusa

Raku cabochon from Etsy seller LisaPetersArt -- glue cabochon onto strip of caramel color leather and add snaps to make bracelet cuff, and toughen this combo up a little bit

I might also add a large contrasting silk square scarf tied and twisted on a satchel handle, flowing down and around. It can be thrown around your shoulders when A/C is cold in restaurant, store, movie theater -- wherever you wear this dress. But I can't find a scarf I like during this December shopping season because "scarves" categories of course bring up thick knitted winter scarves. What should I expect, wind chill was supposed to be -5F here today.

Speaking of the wind chill, I should be sewing a winter coat rather than surfing sandals ...

And if you're a size 10, grab those sandals, they're only $14!
