Fabric Destiny

I love this fabric and I can't decide what to do with it! I think fabric has a destiny, a certain thing it is meant to be. I'm undecided about this piece and troubled by how little of it I possess. I only have about 1 1/4 yards of this fabric (60 inches wide) plus a little extra (not the full width). I want to make a blouse (I'm dreaming about a bow neck blouse) but isn't it strange that so many blouse patterns require so much yardage? The fabric is medium weight, probably synthetic and well suited for a blouse. I considered making a dress like this but I'm worried that the print wouldn't work and that the fabric should be darker in color for that style. Does anyone have a suggestion? A pattern or an idea? Much thanks!
