And as for the accessory I just had to try the Rose Cuff Bracelet Tutorial from another one of my favorite blogs Ruffles and Stuff. The only thing I did different was brush on some gold fabric paint to the petals for a more antique look (and for a bit of sparkle).
Now I still had a good amount left of the shirt I cut up for my sister's ruffle shirt and I just couldn't throw it away. So I went back to Target and got another coral shirt to embellish for myself. Inspired by a J. Crew ruffle tank, I came up with my own embellished tee.
I'll call it the Waterfall Ruffle Tee.
