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.

Ooooh. Pretty. I look forward to pics along the way!
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.Teddy
