What to sew with ella elephant fabric

I need ideas on what to sew with my elephant fabric I have been hoarding! I was originally going to make DDs going home outfit out of it, but that didn't happen and now she is 3.5!
I was thinking maybe a dress or a romper, but I am afraid of making something that doesnt show off the beauty of the fabric lol
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
Thanks

Oh that's super cute!

A dress would be nice, or a cute bag.

A floppy summer hat would be cute too.
