Reinventing the Catholic Schoolgirl

I volunteered to donate one of my dress form dolls to a charity auction coming up next month for a private Catholic school. The only question now is how will I design it? A pleated paper skirt in a plaid pattern is a must but I'm conflicted about what to do for the top.

I'm not particularly wild about the whole catholic schoolgirl look because it's too plain and rightly so. I like the neckline of the green polka dot dress above which I could combined with capped sleeves like the dress shown in front.

Here's another possible look for the neckline that I think is very very cute. I could somehow mix and match elements from each dress that I like to make it my own. It will be interesting to see how this evolves. What do you think?
