A New Dress

I headed to John Lewis yesterday to spend my birthday gift voucher from my work colleagues. While I wildly appreciate they are now stocking Amy Butler fabric, I'm not so wild about the colour schemes they currently have in. However, I was determined not to leave the shop without 2 metres of material, and in the end I had three to choose from that I liked.
After looking at myself draped in all three in front of a mirror I eventually chose this fabric. The other serious contender was the same fabric but in two shades of blue. I really liked it as well, and I think my natural colouring suits deep blue, but there was something about the faded pink and green that just won me over. I plan to make this dress with it.

The good news today is that my husband comes home after being away for two and a half weeks. I've really missed him.

I love your new fabric - where did you get the aline skirt pattern? I can see my fabric combining with a black halterneck top i have beautifully.
what is the pattern code for the simplicity?
