I would do choice # 3 but I see that you choose to fold the solid red/orange/rust band at the bottom up quite a bit from where it is at in # 1, would that leave you enough fabric to create a contrast collar around the neckline so that both the neckline and the border compliment each other?

I'm interested in how you would create a collar? The neckline is elastic - what would you do? a thin ruffle edge or something?

I would just use the cut off edge from the border as bias tape.  Just fold it with an iron so that raw edges would be on the inside and then stretch out the elastic while you sew it on so that it would gather the same way as the current edge does but with a color accent.  I think with the border, ruffles would be a bit too much ornamentation.  However if you wanted to use a contrast thread in the orange/gold (sorry can't quite tell from the picture) from the pattern on the border, I think that would work well.

Oh, I wish I had that book D: I would love to make this. What is the name of the book?

(I'd personally vote dress, but I think you've already adjusted it by now.)
