Help me out here

I’ve got this awesome fabric:


And it’s just enough to make either of these dresses:



late-1960s A-line

I think this fabric would be just about equally fabulous with either pattern, but I’m not sure which to go with. Opinions would totally not hurt my feelings right now!

    I like both (haha aren’t you glad that you asked) but I think I’d vote for the sundress.

    That is indeed some awesome fabric! I think I would go with the first dress. It seems to complement the Hawaiian-like feeling of the fabric a little better.

    I’m thinking something along the lines of a 60s shift dress http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_430xN.21820378.jpg (the second one on the left), or maybe the a-line one you posted. Something like this could work: http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_430xN.17873741.jpg

    What ever you decide, it’ll be a fun dress!

    I would vote for dress #1.

    See I would go for the a-line because you could wear it more places.
    That an the fabric says “number 2” to me.

    I love Shannon’s idea. The print is so busy I think you need a shift-type dress. Or else just a skirt. Like I know anything!

    I probably won’t go for a shift dress, though. It might suit the fabric better, but it wouldn’t suit my figure at all. Shifts and sheathes just don’t do so well for me…my shape requires that my clothes make a few polite insinuations about what *might* hide beneath them!

    I’m voting for #2. In my mind, that’s a fairly bold print for a sundress (at least a sundress that I’d consider buying/wearing if I were into buying/wearing sundresses). It would also make a nice sleeveless jersey for one really tall fella to wear in Wisconsin come around the June time frame 😉
