Orange Fabric Decisions

As a spring vacation is quickly approaching I have been staring at a piece of fabric that I purchased a while back. I have never really quite made a decision as to either make a skirt or dress out of the fabulous fabric. It is a gorgeous muted orange doodles fabric begging to be cut. :) I was inspired by both the fabric and one of Altuzarra's looks for Spring 2015.

I decided that if I did a fashion illustration of both options I would be able to easily decide. Well I was wrong. Here is my fashion illustration that I did hoping to solve my dilemma.

I posted this illustration on my facebook page and got an overwhelming response of dress. Only problem was that I did not have enough fabric for the dress as I had hoped. I ended up making the skirt instead and I absolutely love it! I would have made a similar skirt to Altuzarra's pencil skirt with buttons but buttons are not my friend. So what do you guys think? Should I have made the dress? I'll post pictures of the finished skirt later this week.

If I really want an orange print dress, I could always cheat and get Motel's  high neck shift dress.
