I am making myself a skirt with a built in bra.  The skirt is one I found at a second hand grave and is a black floral print sheer fabric with black underneath.  The problem I'm having is what black fabric I have to pair with it for the covering of the bra.

I want it to be a halter type top in a rockabilly type style.  
Here are the options.  I need opinions!  

The fabric at the top is the skirt fabric.

I, personally, like the third option.

I like #3 best, too; the others are too dark

Gosh, I really like 1, 2, & 4. It's hard to decide. #3 doesn't seem to match as well- it could just be the photo as well.

I do like 3, like the others said, but I think a lot depends on the weight and feel of the fabric too (which is hard to tell from any photo Smiley )

That fabric is gorgeous though.
