A box of fabric from EOS

Not too long ago I said I was going on a fabric and pattern diet.  I have fallen off that wagon.  A brown box came yesterday with fabric from EOS. I started out only planning to buy lining fabric to go with the navy blue lace fabric acquired from Mood recently.  I bought three colors as I was not sure and still am not sure what color to use underneath.
I have sapphire, nude and marine linings.  I think I want a contrast and thought the sapphire blue would be nice; or go with nude for an even more contrast or the marine color is perfect match to the lace fabric.  What do you think, contrast or match?  It will be a dress.








I fell in love with this pretty floral cotton fabric.









Then there was this knit fabric that was similar to a maxi dress made by Mimi.  Not sure what this will be.

  2. Oh, I especially like that stripe with the flowers. And, yes, Mimi made some stunning maxis with hers.

    I love Emma One Sock, but am on a fabric-buying diet. :)

    1. Probably navy blue shoes, though a flesh color would be considered as well. I can say I have ruled out the marine lining as it really will not showcase the lace as much.

  5. I can't decide which lining I'd like without looking at each combination ... but I would lean towards more contrast to emphasize the beauty. I was on a fabric & pattern diet, too and my box of fabric arrived today :)
    Your prints are gorgeous!

    1. I have decided to not use the marine blue lining as it does not really show off the lace as much. I am really liking the print fabrics and need to whip something up soon.
