Could you Please Help me Decide ?

I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do with a printed scuba knit , bought last winter. It was this.



The pattern choice was so problem. Burda 6988 of course.

I had a royal blue plain scuba knit to use for the yoke and side panels but I wasn't sure about that combo so I made this top  (V8856)  to try out the  two fabrics.





 I like it but I'm still not sure about the dress. The royal blue is a bit brighter than the blue in the print.

 I took pics of the print with royal blue and the ptint with a  navy blue knit . I was wondering if you, dear readers could vote on A or B to force my hand. I'll go with the one that gets the most votes so here goes.

(A)...royal blue




or (B)...navy



Please help me out !

I liked the royal blue, until I scrolled down and saw the navy! It has so much more 'pop' and it frames it nicely. I vote B!

Brenda said...

Navy has my vote! But I'm biased toward subtle...

Dinah said...

I vote for the navy! It really makes the print be the star.

Towanda said...

The navy works better with the print

Faye Lewis said...

Navy, Navy, Navy!

Tany said...

The royal blue looks good,... But Navy looks even better :)

Voting for the black, the blue is too bright.

I I initially like the royal until you pointed out the Blues were not an exact match. I'm leaning far more towards navy...has more impact.

Navy!

Sue said...

Definitely the navy. It will also give you a really slimming effect.

Mary Jo Barclay said...

I like the navy, the royal blue is to bright

debbie said...

Navy.It makes the print pop better. When paired w/the royal blue the print just blends in.

Another voice chiming in for navy; it looks much richer.

Navy for me too!

Barbara said...

Another vote for navy. It makes sense to have the darker color in a long sleeve dress, I think.

Pam from South Australia said...

I like the navy too.

jsews said...

I really like the navy!!

Vicki said...

Yep, navy. The bright blue is just a bit too much.

KayC said...

I like the navy as well

Kathie said...

Oh, navy, for sure!

Sarah Liz said...

Navy. That will also add a nice slim look down the sides, instead of jumping out as the royal tends to do.

Sharon said...

The royal blue is to bright you see if before anything else, Navy is the way to go.

Andrea said...

The navy will go much further as a wardrobe staple I believe. Although, I am personally drawn to the dramatic side with the royal blue. Even I have to tone it down ever so often. The navy will go with your red jacket you just made.

I do love the blue, but if you want to really feel good in this dress, navy it is. So much about color is how you feel in it, there is that inner sense. Since you are asking us, your inner sense is speaking to you. ENJOY and can't wait to see your new dress. Plus you could have two garments: one blue and one navy--a great experience.

I'm torn because I like both. ..but for this dress I say Navy too Diana.

I love your idea! The navy is my choice. Great job on the top!

Navy looks really good and is truer to your original sketched vision too! Go navy!

Tut said...

I love how the navy lets you appreciate all the subtleties of the print. You find such beautiful fabrics! Looking forward to the post of the completed dress and hope you link all your past entries that are related. I like the sketch with the slash of navy across the top and on the sides and cuffs. It frames the print so well.

Gwyneth said...

Another vote for the Navy! It just pops the print so nicely.

dollsntpartys said...

The navy is beautiful. The print is the star and yet it blends so beautifully.

Amanda S. said...

Navy, for sure.

LinB said...

Royal blue. It does not have to be an exact match to be a pleasant coordinate. The navy blue dulls the print too much for my tastes.

Ann Sprunger said...

navy blue would make it a bit more elegant for winter months. It would also give you a slimmer profile.

Jeanie said...

I'd love to see what it looks like with black! Between the two blues, definitely navy.

Another vote for navy. Can't wait to see it!

Judi Pinkham said...

Navy, although they are both pretty.

Sueann Walter said...

The navy blue gets my vote, it looks more ready to wear.
