    I picked up some beautiful Robert Kaufman fabric. This is what it is:

    Contents: 55% COTTON, 45% SILK

    Width: 43” wide

    Weight: 2.4 oz. per square yard

    Which dress should I use it for? It’s peacock blue, slight sheen, fairly light weight. I might just pet it for a while.

    Sounds like a perfect fabric for the Fairy Tale dress.:) Nicole is the queen of silk…she’s done lots of O+S patterns in it!

    How much of the fabric do you have? It would give a fair idea as to what you could use it for depending on the size and how much you have.

    As for the dress pattern, the world is literally your oyster on this one. Do you want it as a summer or winter dress?

    You could do any dress pattern in silk.

    What age/size?

    I could imagine a georgeous Tea Party dress in peacock blue.

    Maybe an apple picking dress, Nicole made a lovely one in light blue/turquoise silk, I think.

    But I agree with justsewit most og the dresses wouldbe lovley.

    Size 7. I bought enough for the Fairy Tale dress. We’re heading into winter. Should I wait for spring?

    Blue Silk fairytale dress for Christmas? Sounds lovely.

    But you might get more wear in the warmer weather, would be great for Easter.

    OOh, it sounds divine. I agree that it would make a stunning Fairy Tale dress, or Apple Picking, or Seashore, Birthday Party, Bubble — I associate peacock blue more with Autumn than spring, but depending on what trim and buttons you use, really, you could do so many things.

    Depending on how cold your winter is and whether you want this dress as a special occasion/ good dress it may pay to leave it until Spring when she could wear it without a jacket covering it up all the time.

    Either way it sounds absolutely delightful!
