Amanda with mint: Burda 08-2011-119

My name is Lucia. I am a fabricholic. I buy and buy and never make anything. Here is to changing that!

A couple of years ago at a Stoffenbeurs in the Amsterdam RAI, I saw the most gorgeous cut fake fur in a shade somewhere between lilac and steel that I've been calling greyple (gray + purple). I quickly snapped it up and then proceeded to find some coordinating fabric for a dress or pants or top to go with it. Naturally I bought fabric for all three: a matching wool twill for pants, a wool blend in a sort-of mini-herringbone pattern for a dress and for the top a lightweight jersey with the most amazing hand in a saturated pastel mint that matches the herringbone wool.
