Edited 6/26/07 It looks like S3744 is the winner. Joann's has Simplicity on sale again starting next Monday so I'll pick it up then. I'll probably also buy 4118 and make a different dress with that. Something a little more sedate, perhaps. Thank you all so much for your comments!!
I bought this cool print from Fabricmart. It's a cotton lycra stretch twill and in person, it screams 60's to me. I think it needs to become a dress but I'm seeking advice as to which one. So here's the print again and several dress options.
For 3744, I would do view B and add a black contrast trim similar to Eve's awesome version shown here.
For 4118, I like the belt from view C, the neckine shown in view D and perhaps short sleeves like view B. I would do the belt in a black contrast fabric.
So what do you think.... either of these options?
I considered the miniskirt in 3833 but I think I ruled that one out
