My Three Fabrics For This Week's Fabricista Fashion Challenge

So I just finished and sent off my images for Week 3 of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge.  There are now only eight of us in the competition and I am so excited to see what everyone has been working on this week!

So here is the challenge for Week 3:
Using a 6 yard Bundle that Fabric Mart has given each contestant, make TWO pieces. What's in the bundle is a mystery.  Everyone received something different! Incorporate the three fabrics in some way. Use fabric from your stash to finish the look, but keep in mind that the bundle fabric must make up a majority of the outfit. Each participant will be judged on creativity, craftsmanship, the way the fabrics are used together, and how they fit. 

I sewed up a storm and lots of it was by hand.  Here you can see what I was given to work with.

My three fabrics: [from left to right] A poly brocade--a black, large scale bold floral on a and pale gray background, a cotton/poly shirting-- the solid claret/violet/purple/wine... not sure what to call it, and a cotton houndstooth-- the black and white fabric.  I know the floral isn't easy to see here but tomorrow you'll see the finished product anyhow.  Any guesses?!
