You guys had a great idea!

You guys have such good ideas. I hadn't thought about pairing the dress pattern and that silk suiting. I was thinking it would be nice with some black piping around the waist belt and the neck band. I sketched up a little mock-up with Paint.net. Granted the scale is off (the stripes would be much smaller) but I think this could be a fantastic dress. The fabric is only 45" wide but I have plenty to make this dress out of it.


This might need to be my next project!

That's a good idea. I have a couple ideas for you:
1. make the neck band(s) and waist band(s) on the bias
2. while you're at it, fringe the neck band.

I think your fabric choice is perfect. Similar to a dress I saw in Talbot's catalog.
