I prefer the way the back hangs now that the pleats have been removed and intend to use the pattern of the skirt to make a stand alone skirt with some fabric I bought in New York a couple of years ago and which has a similar brown in the pattern as this fabric.
Here the dress is shown with a purchased jacket I bought last year. The photo perhaps doesn't do the colour match justice but the two pieces work well together. My plan is to make the skirt mentioned above to expand this capsule wardrobe.

I tried something 'new to me' for the appliques by embroidering onto two layers of crystal organza which worked out really well and is something I'll do again.
