Making My Own Ruffles

A.Co Designs top, Sirens skirt, Target necklace,
Anne Michelle shoes (also seen here), Suzy bangle & ring

I hinted about this top, and for those of you who follow me on twitter, know that I made it myself.  As I mentioned before, I've started sewing (and experimenting).  I found this fabulous fabric (on sale of course, I am an amature) and thought it would make a great top with embellishment.  Well, I was right and am loving it.  Not only that, but I got several compliments and am so happy with how it turned out it's making it hard to tear myself away from the sewing machine!
