Stash Busting: Colette Sorbetto Top

I downloaded Colette's Sorbetto top a few months ago to make myself a new top using something out of my stash. How hard is it to pick a fabric and sew it up? Quite hard it seems.

It's some kind of synthetic fabric (If I work out exactly what it is I'll update this) with a see through design of flowers and leaves in navy blue. I've had it in my stash for longer than I can remember (so, probably at least 10 years). I lined it (for obvious reasons) with matching navy blue lining. Also from the stash.
