What to make out of this fabric?

Hi! This is my first post here :)

I've got this really cute fabric, but it's just been lying in my closet ever since I bought it last year. Every time I take it out to make something of it I never know what to do with it, so it's just collecting dust.


This is the fabric



There are 1,9x1,2m of it. (One of those sale pieces, so I couldn't chose the length.) Not too much, so I guess it will have to be a skirt or maybe a JSK or underbust. (would it be enough?)

I know I've seen a few dresses made out of this, I believe MAM, Volks and I think also Bodyline used this print last summer. I can't find any pictures of the dresses, so if you have pictures I would love to see them.

My troubles with this fabric are;
- Because of the print, will it look weird with decorations like bows and lace?
- What to do with the waist, I'm afraid it will look really tacky if it's gathered at the waistline, but cutting A-shaped pieces out of a striped fabric is just.. bad. So whats left? Plaits? 

Any suggestions are appreciated <3

Thank you!
