I love this fabric- it is a really gauzy cotton but the print is fabulous. I wanted a simple pattern so I printed out the Anda dress and went to town. It came out kind of large, but I like that it sort of looks more like a peasant top that way. I modified the neckline because I was afraid that with my chest and the high one I'd resemble the prow of a ship more than anything else, and I'm pleased with it, but I may add a button and loop closure to keep it from flopping. It rucks up under my breasts quite often, so I think the belt looks best with it, though my mum disagrees!  Cheesy Pic:

Love your description - made me giggle!  Prow of a ship!  You look lovely in this - it would look great with tights or leggings too.  I like the belt - maybe you could try a wide sash too?  You could tie it in the front, back, side, whatever. 
Love it!
