Haul: New Fabric and Pattern

Picked up some really cute fabrics while browsing the shops today and all of them were remnants so I got them at a discounted price! I'm hoping to start making a few bits and bobs to sell so when I saw these prints I couldn't pass them up and was flooded with ideas for them.

I love this cupcake pattern! There were quite a few remnants of this, all 100cm x 150cm which is quite a substantial amount. I'm considering making some dresses out of it and, as its a jersey fabric, popping an elasticated waist in to cinch it. Its a lovely heavy jersey and really good quality!

This was a slightly smaller remnant I picked up at about 80cm x 110cm so I'm looking to make a skirt out of this. I'd love to do a high-waisted pencil skirt. Its a fairly lightweight cotton print so I also bought some lining fabric to go with it.

As well as these fabrics I noticed that Simplicity are currently doing 50% off all their patterns until 14th September so I grabbed myself this gorgeous pattern:

 I intend to make some dresses for myself from this though I may make some adjustments here and there. I'm hoping to make it out of georgette, which is not recommended on the back of the pattern but I love floaty dresses and I know I'll get the best results from a soft georgette or chiffon.

What do you think I should make with my new fabrics? If you have any ideas let me know!
