As inspiration morphs..

Behold!- a lovely tropical floral tricot.  It's super silky, very drapey too.  When purchased, I was envisioning a 70's blouse with a ruffled neck. But what I didn't realize was how big the floral motif was on this fabric!  The flowers are the size of softballs, and although I'm a big fan of using pattern lines to break up a fabric motif, I'm thinking this fabric is begging for simpler lines.  

In fact I'm thinking right along these lines..

I like it.  It has a certain Faye Dunaway quality to it.  Breezy, competent but feminine.  Inexplicably, it seems like something one of Doctor Who's companions might wear.  Or Miss Trixi.
