Fabrics chosen

I sorted through my initial pile of fabrics and removed some which don't quite match (its astonishing how many shades of dark brown you can get!)
I am now left with
In plain dark brown - faux leather, satin, stretch polyester knit
Knits in plain dark orange, bright orange, orange and white print and brown and orange print
In plain cream - satin and shirred blouse fabric
and then the main fabric which is dark brown stretch suiting with stripes - the stripes are variegated in light brown, yellow, orange, cream and white. This last fabric is destined to be a softly tailored jacket with pants, gauchos and a skirt plus a matching vest (I'm hoping for the magic porridge pot effect here!)
I've started picking out patterns too so maybe at the weekend I will have some pictures to share.

dreams for Autumn

Its raining, my burda Plus Fashion Fall/Winter arrived yesterday and I received 2 fall/winter fashion catalogues in the mail.
All of a sudden I've forgotten Khaki and Coral City Safari and I'm dreaming about Chocolate orange cream Office Wear!
I've been collecting fabrics along this theme for a while now and I'm not sure I can wait until the Timmel SWAP starts in December.

Photos of fabrics sometime later in the week for those who are interested.
