The end of this bit of fabric

The main challenge here was to use it all up so nothing would return to my fabric hoard. I just hate those small pieces. Too small to really make anything. They mock me bitterly. I wasn't really crazy about this fabric to begin with but it drapes so nicely! That is worth a whole lot. I'm not sure whether I like this and I don't know if it's a dress or a coat.

I ordered this from fabric.com

It was "silk suiting" for about 5 dollars a yard. Sometimes on the internet you really can't tell what the fabric will resemble when you get it on the net. When this fabric came it gave me a bourgeois eighties Chanel vibe so I really didn't know what I could do with it. The dress below, surprisingly, was made using a real 1950s pattern. It's for a muumuu!

Here's Wikipedia's definition of a muumuu: (basically the funniest garment name ever)

The muumuu or muʻumuʻu (IPA: /ˈmumu/) is a loose dress of Hawaiian origin[1] that hangs from the shoulder. Like the Aloha shirt, muumuu exports are often brilliantly colored with floral patterns of generic Polynesian motifs. Muumuu for local Hawaiian residents are more subdued in tone. Muumuu are not as widely worn at work as the aloha shirt, but may be worn as a uniform by women working in the hotel industry. Muumuu are also popular as maternity gowns and with obese people because they do not restrict the waist.

I bought some really nice silk tartan

but sewing it can be a little challenging. The hard part is matching the pattern when sewing. The shoulder pads are on the dress form to approximate my measurements.
