Ugly dress pattern turns into fun autumn-ey top

Today I put together this simple, fun top inspired by Matty M's classy silk print tops from Nordstrom TBD.

So here's my version, all shiny:

And I know this is fuzzy but the color is so much better without the flash!
 
It was actually pretty hard to find a pattern for such a simple dolman sleeve top, so I used this Simplicity one that's meant for knits:

It's really a very ugly pattern the way they make it up.  But version C with the sleeves of version D is pretty much what I needed to emulate the cute tops I've seen.  I used a very cheap poly from JoAnn that was half off the clearance price, so it was $2 a yard and I needed a yard.  Cheap.  It's woven so I opened up the left side of the hip band and gave it hooks and eyes to close, so it goes over my head.
