The gorgeous fabric top

When I found this amazing light pink double gauze back in 2016 1) I squealed 2) I squealed a little more 3) I envisioned a big ruffled top to mirror the busy print. Indeed you can spot apples, pears, strawberries and bananas as well as birds, stars and dots on it, all of these in a variety of pastel and gold tones:

For the pattern I used a TNT top from an old Ottobre magazine and added gathered bands of fabric at the sleeves and hem for the ruffles:

My only concern is about my visible stitching which is extremely wonky because my machine is getting old and double gauze has a tendency to shift a little. So next time I'll work with this type of fabric I won't choose a contrasting thread to limit the damage !
