I have about a million different dresses I want to sew up, so narrowing down the possibilities to four is not easy. Also, the requirement that each dress and all the tops and bottoms have to coordinate with at least one jacket is tricky too. At this point, this is what I have settled on so far:
Dress 1 of 4: Vogue 2903 in black satin brocade - I saw the exact fabric I want for this dress at Fabricland the last time I was there.
Jacket 1 of 2: Vogue 2934 as my reversible garment with black velvet on one side and black silk dupioni on the other. I have the silk, but I need to purchase the velvet.
Bottom 1 of 2: Simplicity 3881 in the same black silk dupioni as above.
Top 1 of 3: Butterick 3301 in a knit with black flocked lace on brown backing.
Dress 2 of 4: Simplicity 7990 in a mottled satin that has green, orange, brown and cream in it.
Jacket 2 of 2: Butterick 8020 in the same mottled satin fabric as above.
Dress 3 of 4: Butterick 8020 (the pattern right above) in a brown silk dupioni for the highwaisted skirt portion and a brown ruffled fabric for the upper bodice. I got the idea for this dress from a great vintage dress for sale on eBay. It was featured on the clothesaholic blog (third dress down on the Nov. 20th post).
Dress 4 of 4: Butterick 4991 in a wonderful burnout silk velvet that Julie has for sale. I want to place the dark part of the fabric at the hem and have it get lighter as it ascends the dress to the bodice and shoulders.
That leaves me with 2 tops and a bottom on which to decide. That is, assuming my head doesn't actually explode!
