Blue Wool for Winter

Yet another fabric change for the impending Peter Pan collared dress I've written about here and here. I liked the charcoal pinstripes, but when I actually unfurled the piece of fabric, I realized that I'm just shy of having enough. So, I took a trip to fabric row, and after spending way too long browsing and daydreaming, I decided to go with this blue wool:

The plan is to use the wool for both the dress and collar, and use piping along the edge of the collar and waistband. Now I just have to decide on a color for the piping. 

Here are the three contenders:



and pink

Any suggestions?
