With the velveteen I really want to make a fitted jumper (sleeveless dress). Buttons down the back, unless they would dig into my back and make me crazy. I recently finished a dress block for myself so should be able to draft and/or drape a pattern.
The plaid is trickier. Initially I bought it to make a hat (label said cotton cashmere, it was with wools, I had a fibro-induced moment of stupid).
Instead I'm hoping to get a dress from it--only 1.5yd but it's ~60" wide. The face is smooth, the reverse side brushed. I'd like to use the reverse side as an accent.
Perhaps a 60s style sheath from the plaid? Or Vogue's 8280 dress, inspired by Roland Mouret's Galaxy (this means nothing to me ;). Very Prairie made two great versions. Mine would likely be sleeveless.
I also have a Burda raglan dress that could be fun, too. Having trouble with Blogger so raglan dress is down there ↓ Same reason I linked to the Vogue dress rather than loading a pic of the pattern cover (it wouldn't. pout.)
