Dress Update

I see One Monthly Goal float around on various blogs and finally took a closer look at it.  I've decided to give this a try as motivation to update this dress!

I made this dress years ago.  Love the shape and the feel of the fabric... but haven't been so thrilled my choice of color.  I tried jazzing it up four years ago, but it ended up in the closet and hasn't been worn since. 

After my successful spot removal, I decided I should give the dress another try.  I pulled possible colors nearly a month ago.  These are the finalists.




Now I'm stuck on a design.  I wanted multiple colors but the dress has simple lines, it's fighting against complex applique.  If I had to choose one color, I think I'd go for the wavy blue/turquoise.  So - very simple and possibly more than one color?  Or a squiggly (to have fun with bias tape) and one color.  Hmm....  Regardless, I want this jazzed up and wearable by the end of July.

I like all the colors and patterns. Can't really tell what your design is...

Bottom right, bottom right has a nice flow, larger at top, thinner trailing down.
