(or kept your mouth shut if you did--bwaahaaahha--that's ok too!!)
I have two patterns I am mulling over "derived" from your suggestions.
I still feel like its a lot of color for a maxi on my body, so I'm gonna go shorter. I love the retro Butterick, but I am really leaning towards the Vogue pattern, but I'll have to see where my "heart" takes me when the "making" time comes. I want this for vacation coming up in a few weeks so I gotta get started soon.
Again, thanks for the suggestions, I'm grateful to sew this out of my stash!! It was a fabric I got
(and it's ok to laugh at my Photoshop skills, it's not my strong point - haaa!!)
