I love this top!! First of all, it looks great on you! And the colors and patterns are so perfect together. I'm a sucker for paisley. Awesome work!!

This looks great on you.  (My family had those sheets growing up.  Last I remember they were extremely worn out and now my dad uses them for painting, etc.)  I think the ruffles look very pretty but if you wanted to tone it down a little you could do piping around the neckline instead but keep the other ruffles.

Thanks for all the compliments (and suggestions)! I did wear it out today on a girl's trip to the craft store, etc.

I think the ruffles look very pretty but if you wanted to tone it down a little you could do piping around the neckline instead but keep the other ruffles.

I think a version with piping or just a top/edge stitch would show off the sweetheart neckline better. But I do enjoy the 60s-eque ruffles. Originially I had intended the cut and so forth to be reminiscent of 40s style blouses, but because of the vibrant paisley and green, it turned out much more 60s.

So I altered it for something fun to do, adding the sweetheart neckline and  ruffles. The main reason for the ruffles was that I could only find green buttons and they needed tying in. That and the fact that I wanted to try out the Ruffler I found when going through all the original, antique accessories that go with our machine (that we never use).

Speaking of original, antique accessories that go with our machine (that we never use)... What kind of machine do you have?

I got a box of attachments along with a 1938 Singer 201 that appear to have the same type of fitting as yours.  The Singer came with its own box of attachments; so, I have a box of all metal presser feet that are of no use to me.  If you or anybody else is interested in them, PM me.
