shop notes and pattern plans

My little Etsy shop has made it's first few sales! Feels good! A learning experience, though, I've been asking questions in the forums quite a bit and am fine tuning my prices and product to build a nice little brand for myself. It's fun!

I added this beauty just this morning:
I would keep it if I had the space. See how it matches my 1969 appliances!?

In other news, I promised I'd share my haul from Denver fabrics. Wanna see my plans??
 This one's tried and true, I made it last Summer and is a favorite! I'm excited to make it again.
 This beautiful rayon will make a lovely long, basic skirt, I think.
 This one will be really pretty if I can get the best use out of the border print. I don't plan on using it in the traditional (border at the hem) way, so we'll see what I can come up with. It's a rayon lawn, so it will be super cool and comfortable.
 I got a sort of stripe knit to try out that long version!
This pink knit was in the $1.97 a yard bin. There's a lot of it, so I will probably get a knit nightgown out of it after I make this cute tie front cardigan.

SO, what to make first?? Suggestions??

My serger is in the shop :( but I'm plugging away at some dresses for the girls while I wait for its return. Makes me wonder how I did without it all those years, ha!
