New Dress Patterns to Sew Up!

I just got 5 new patterns in the mail the other afternoon! I am so excited... This is like a Christina Christmas right now!
Here are the 5 I chose-
I think this is my favorite of the bunch.
Probably my second favorite!..
Most are just quick easy summer dresses. *Perfect* for evenings out on the town... Now I just need to hunt for the ideal fabrics! Any suggestions if you've made these before.. any ideas for the fabric selections?
Time to get started! *evil grin*

Don't use tweed! I thought I could make a similar dress to your last one with a tweed-like fabric, but it was a disaster! I would stay away from really thick fabrics on anything that requires gathers. I was trying to be new and different, but now I realize why you don't normally see things like that. I'm still trying to salvage it, so if it works out, I'll let you know. Is it easy to find patterns/fabric there?

Please do! I'll probably avoid it for now then. I'm mostly planing on light summery fabrics for now.. and possibly something heavier for fall (but that will be a while out)

I've been on the hunt for a REALLY good fabric store, with no luck.. I'm going to try a few out next week.. so we'll see if they are any better. I tend to order online for the most part. It's a lot easier. (and cheaper) I don't think I've seen any patterns though.. and they'd most likely been in German. I've just ordered mine online whenever they have good sales. :) There IS a nice (little) quilt fabric store downtown.. and the lady who owns it is awesome.
