Anna Dress by By Hand LondonLiberty of London Laura and Alfie Stretch Cotton Poplin

I plan to make a dress by New Look 6587 using the Cotton + Steel Octopus fabric I showed, last week.  

I'm going to purloin segments from two of my favorite podcasts ... Inside Number 23's "Netflix and Knit" and Tiny Paper Foxes' "Make 2 Along"

I'm going to make a dress / shawl outfit, similar to the dress Mia Wasikowska wore in the movie Jane Eyre using Liberty Fabric I spotted at Purl Soho, last summer.
