I'd try the sleeve cutting too, if you think you aren't going to wear it you can't go too wrong and an experiment is worth while. I can usually get away with pinning one sleeve away, just to take a look.
But I think the worst problem may be the strong horizontal feeling of the print. I like the print mind you, and it has very nice colors, but... I think it's just wrong for that design.
