Wow - your top is a perfect demonstration of how to make a challenging, big, bold print work for you. This is great!

Adorable little top! Perfect project for your bold (not ugly, IMO) fabric.

Wow. That is definitely a challenging fabric, but you tamed it well by breaking up the print into layers and ruffles.

Great use of a difficult fabric and it looks really cute on you. Hope the "test drive" is successful.

Cute. :) The print of your fabric is actually interesting -- I think they just went a bit OTT on the colors and busy-ness of the design. Good save.

Overall, I'd have to consider the fabric ugly. But the piece parts of it a very nice. And you made spectacular use of the piece parts. It might not be your usual style, but it certainly looks good on you.

I am drawn to these types of fabrics but don't know what to do with them so they sit in the stash or I pass them by. Great use of fabric to make a definately not ugly top! It looks great.

Really cute. You blasted any "ugly" factor with your great motif placement. Looks very bohemian and currently chic - wear it with pride!
