I WON Something!

I was the winner of a random drawing on Elliot Berman Textiles Friday Fabric Love on Facebook recently. I am super excited, because I've never won anything like this before. I received my prize right away: two yards each of two different Dolce & Gabbana fabrics.

The one on the right is a beautiful rust, cream and brown sheer woven viscose. The embroidered stripes run vertically with random translucent sequins stitched in. It's light and delicate and has a lovely rumply-crinkley look to it. There are a million and 5 things that can be done with it, I just need to settle on the right one.
