Possible patterns for blouse

Butterick 6768 (on left) and Butterick B4735 (on right) are my current favourites. I want a simple wrap shape with minimal detailing as the fabric is so strong alone.

I sewed a version of 6768 for the SWAP in 2007 where I merged the longer version with the wider ties. I got in a tangle with the front pleating though. I reviewed it on PR at the time, but haven't worn the blouse much, I think becuase its too dark/muted a print, although the fit is good.

I sewed a short sleeve version of view A of 6768 last month (haven't reviewed it yet on PR because I haven't had time to take a picture). It was great to sew, except the pleating details confused me a little, and I found the top to be surprisingly short. I'm slightly long waisted, but the top ends barely past my waist. Just to warn you. I'm sure I'll sew it again, though.

I would go for the 6768 - it looks more fitted at the waist. The pleating will make for a good shape (and this time around you are a much more experienced sewer).
Could you bleach/dye the first version in a way that will make it more versatile/appealing to you?! If the fit is good, it would be to bad if it was wasted.
