I did promise some posts about the fabric I bought in the UK, and here's the first, about a pattern called "First Prize" that I love:
I bought some a couple of years back (probably on eBay) and made with it. I waffled a bit about buying it in the navy colorway, since I hate navy shoes, but it's a very dark navy, and besides, I recently bought some kiltie-style heels that are the exact tan of the tan in this print. So there's that settled.
That said, I have no idea what this will be. Not another Duro. Possibly a shirtdress, if I bought enough. Whatever it becomes, I think of it as an early-October dress, with a light blue cardigan and a pocket full of those terrible-wonderful peanut-butter taffy candies that you only see around Halloween, wrapped in orange and black waxed paper.
You don't have to go all the way to Liberty to get this fabric — it's online at (where I bought it in-person), here.
