Sewing plans

My grandmother gave me this beautiful fabric when I went to visit her. I think it used to be a child's duvet-cover, so there's not that much of it, but I think It will be enough for a dress. I'm thinking a simple, fitted bodice and a gathered skirt. It might be how most of my dresses look, but there's a reason for that; it's both flattering and comfortable!

I thought I might use this Retro Butterick pattern, or something like it, but change the skirt to a gathered one. The scooped back of this dress makes the simple design look so lovely, and that little bow on the patterned dress is such a cute detail. I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
