Opinions needed

I've been packing, so I have not knit or sewn a stitch. But I've been THINKING about knitting and sewing a lot!

I got some of this fabric and want to use it for one of two dresses, but I can't decide which.


Dress 1 is more of a party dress, but I think (?) it could be causal, too. Which is needed, because I don't attend many parties. I think it would look great in this fabric.


Dress 2 is a wrap dress, aka the wear anywhere dress, and I think it would be gorgeous in this fabric, too.

But I want to use the fabric for whichever style the print will go better with. What do y'all think? I am pretty bad at imagining how things are going to look, so I'd love some opinions/advice!

Well, since is a large print I would go for the second choice... I love the first dress though! I'm not sure if the print would go well with all the gathers but you can try to drape the fabric and maybe gather it a little on your body and see if you like it...

I'm going to be of no help yet again. I think the a wrap dress makes so much sense and can be worn so many ways, but then again, the fabric is so hot and bold that I think it needs to be part of a party dress, like the first one. See? I'm no help...

I think this print would look great in the wrap dress. Although you'll have to make the party dress pattern at some point - it's a fabulous design.

I think the print would look fabulous as a wrap dress.

I'm going against the grain as it were. I like the party dress. But the wrap would look great as well.

I'm thinking the first pattern you put up. I love wrap dresses, but I'm really thinking that the Vogue dress is going to be v wearable as a day dress too in that fabric, and probably a little more flattering on you. I'm cutting that one out in a large print and in a white cotton in the next day or two, so you can see what they look like if you want to wait.
