Me-Made-May Weekend Peony Print Fabric Affair

I have concluded a 48 hour affair with two Me-Made pieces from the same April Johnston Project Runway Fabric. I purchased my fabric some time ago from the Jo Ann Fabric Stores clearance section. Jo Ann has continued the fabric line however I am not as drawn to the current offering I much prefer the original

I was able to snag a few of these fabrics for my stash. Most recently I used my graphic floral peony print, which is a printed polished stretch cotton. Out of the 3 yards that were purchased I was able to make a dress and a skirt.
On Saturday I wore my skirt. It is a simple short circle skirt with a side zip from the Suede Says (a fellow Project Runway alum) Simplicity pattern line 2233

Super cute simple skirt, it was so easy to construct and is easy to wear.

Sunday I wore a dress in the same fabric; the pattern was McCall's 6318 (now out of print). 
Break time selfie at work. Do you see my lovely Mom's Day corsage from the lovely folks I work with? 
Why is it by the time I get around to making a dress I actually like the pattern is OOP and I would have loved to pick up an additional copy for future use. Just my luck, I should sew faster.

For the dress I choose to merge two views my neckline is that of view C but I elected to add the color blocked bodice panels of View B. I thought the print would be overwhelming on me and I am also on a color block kick. 

I love the pattern and I love the fabric. I look forward to cooler months so I can layer the dress over a turtle neck and show off the neat back design lines (do not wear sleeveless so for now I will have to wear a cardigan).
