The one idea that I seem to be fixated upon is a full skirt dress. I have some yellow-green polyester left from the curtains I made for my sis-in-law. (I hate the way it sounds, really- I always say when I hear about curtain to dress project: "Are we in the "Sounds of Music" or what?" But here I am blogging about some curtain fabric for the dress. Life is funny sometimes)
The colour of the fabric is very unusual, not something too many people would wear casually, so it is perfect for my colour blocking dress from 12 in 2012 list.
A couple of years ago I came across a document online with a tutorial on modeling the sleeves (among other pattern manipulation techniques.) Unfortunately, I do not remember where I found it, but there are a few ideas on what you can do with the sleeves.

|more adventurous futuristic sleeve (perfect for balancing heavier bottoms)|
