Another one of my weird obsessions - floral fabric.  60s and 70s upholstery has some of the best patterns and colorways in my personal opinion.  I made this dress a couple years ago from some daisy fabric, with floral piping and white rose buttons.  I finally got some good pictures...



and I just made this skirt from watercolor floral upholstery and teal and black striped taffeta (the stripes are velvet!)

<3! the green--the fabric is pretty awesome but i love the pattern you chose. 

also, i agree--60s and 70s upholstery offers superdooper prints.

I love how very up-to-date these feel with the vintage fabrics. So great! You did an excellent job tailoring that first dress, too.
