I think the silk twill would look stunning using this pattern!
I agree with the shirtdress for the cotton stripe. Maybe one of the raglan sleeve versions.
For some reason I see the gold/black print in a dress with a sexy solid black (maybe knit?) bodice and full tulip style skirt. Add a sweet little cropped jacket if you have enough fabric!
The red/gray stripe would make a super cute sundress with a flared bias skirt.
The teal rose print I see in a summer dress with a full skirt and snug (maybe boned) bodice with very narrow straps (possibly tie over shoulder). Maybe some waist piping for detail.
  1. That's really a great design. It took a very good designer to be able to make a dress this unfitted look chic, and Donald Brooks was a fantastic designer. I'd love to see this made up.
