Sewing Projects - To Do List

Spent an enormous amount of money on fabric today to start some fall sewing projects. Here's what I'm planning:
The first is a ruffled blouse out of a white wavy textured silk.
The wrap dress is out of a maroon colored Bill Blass rayon/viscose knit. It is really heavy and will make a great fall/winter weight dress.
The cowl neck blouse is out of a lightweight pink cotton jersey knit.
The highwaist skirt is out of a black wool crepe to go with the jacket I have already made (picture below).
The short sleeve jacket is out of a white Ellen Tracy cotton jacquard.
And a corduroy jacket is in plum with an irridescent lining (not pictured). I will post pictures as soon as I start. It's a lovely corduroy though, the softest I have ever felt.
This is the jacket that got me started on all of this and for which I am making the black wool crepe skirt. The black fabric is a laser cut cotton and the underlining is a blue stretch linen. It was fun to make and the laser cut fabric does not really "chenille" like I was afraid it would after I washed it.

Here's my favorite fabric right now, but I don't know what to make out of it, so please send me your thoughts. ( I have 2 yards and it's 60" wide) It's a handpainted silk organza with silver metallic embroidery. It's divine, but I'm almost afraid to cut into it!
Planning on staying pretty busy! Wish me luck!
