Refashion plan: From dress to what?

I found this turquoise silk dress for pennies at the thrifts.

I love prints that aren’t florals. So the paisleys were exciting. And I’ve been trying on this blue-green in a wardrobe that contains neither blue nor green.

Thought about hemming up the sleeves and the bottom, since the workmanship on this guy is amazing: Quilted yoke and cuffs, finished insides with interfacing to kick out the shoulders, bra holders, skinny tie front.

Then I noticed this giant spot on the front bosom of the dress. Boo. It’s going to need to be recut into something else.

But what?

Maybe a Wendy top?
Maybe a Cynthia Rowley?
