So I got my first FabricMart mystery bundle and included was 2.5 yards of this. So what would you make out of it?

I've looked at it a couple of times to buy, actually.

Something simple: a basic tunic, a basic skirt, shorts, etc.

If I ever get around to it, I plan on making this with dark brown as the accent or this and making both of them a lot longer.

OMG! A skirt to pair with a long tunic. The tunic would need to be very plain. If nothing else all your friends will love your story.

Depends on you, tlhowell, do you like skirts that go from a slimmer hip and pleat out into a voluminous poof?

A jacket would be nice.

Snug little dress that's sectioned to make it easier to place the print details.

If you have any extra after cutting your garment it would make a very sharp looking bag.

Have fun!

What a fun fabric! I think it would make a great tunic or skirt.

Found this when googling: Chictopia. Love the way the blue is set off in the print by the jacket.

Love the color and the print!
I'd probably make a simple sleeveless dress.
I'd love to have it as maxi, but I don't know how it would work with cotton woven.
