Carrot Top (and 100th Post!)

New Look 6831
Fabric from estate sale
I didn't think I was going to be able to make anything out of this fabric, since I only had 24". But I looked through a few patterns and the only top that would fit was this collarless-sleeveless-facingless top.
What do you think? Is a carrot blouse crazy in a good way or just crazy?

I was worried it might look like more of a vest than a top. I tried to add some ruffles to the front to make it look more blouse-like, but had a hard time making them ruffle evenly, so I gave up. It's too bad there wasn't a bit more because I really like the fabric.

I'm wearing it tomorrow, so we'll see how I feel in it (because that's more important to me than what people say :-)
