Here are some of my ideas:
I plan to use this Vogue pattern and this fabric. The best part about the fabric is that it's double sided, one is a matte finish and the other is a shiny satin. I'll be doing the bulk of the dress in the matte, but the front panel that wraps the waist and goes to the hemline will be in the shiny fabric to add a little visual interest.

I have a bunch of knitting projects in the works as well. A vintage bonnet style hood that ties under the chin with a big satin bow, a bag I'm knitting from a pattern out of a knitting magazine published in 1956 that I found at a thrift store and a cardigan. I'll post pictures and pattern information from those in a separate post.
Wish me luck!
