Hi all! I am new here and very excited to join the pattern jam, since I bought the pattern months ago and have been wanting an excuse to make it. As I contemplate fabric, I am curious what fabrics others have chosen. I definitely want a print, and am contemplating faille. I am almost tempted to do a plaid heavy silk even though it is not suggested, for the challenge and the potential cool effect.

Chocolate brown silk dupion trimmed in Deep burgundy dupion for my entry (it's to be a party dress for a friend)

You'll be lucky! I'm a technological neanderthal who only just got to grips with loading digital camera pictures onto the computer - I have, so far, managed to transfer one of those to my photobucket album, and it took me 45 minutes (dial-up on an old clunky machine).

A friend had a look at our CD-burner and thinks he may have got it working, so there's a *chance* I can burn them to CD and upload them to photobucket form the faster machines at work, but I can't test that theory until I return to work in January.
