Oh my goodness! I am the winner of Sew Retro Rose’s Valentine Give-A-Way! Between that and getting a new job this week I am feeling thankful, blessed, and ecstatic!
Not being the most creative in the crayon box I humbly ask how would YOU embellish with the pretty rick rack? The top and skirt are calling me for this lovely fabric. Off the top of my head I was thinking of putting some near the bottom of the skirt. Perhaps a double row? If I had a smaller waistline I would put some there but no need in drawing attention to that area, right? Rick Rack jewelry anyone?
I have got to try this soon.
This fabric is gorgeous. Of course, it comes from Beccie! The black background really sets off the vivid colours. I am going to feel so special and pretty in the outfit that I make with it.
Any rick rack ideas? Oh, and stay tuned for a Lyrically styled creation from this sweet gift.
Yippeee, my package arrived yesterday (3-20-15) from Australia! Super hugs to you Beccie. Thank you for this gift. 🙂 You know, I’ve been thinking about this fabric since it arrived. I do not think I am going to make a full circle type skirt with this lovely fabric. Frankly, with 46″ hips I just don’t think the full circle is flattering on me. Half, or quarter circle, okay I can deal with that. If I weren’t swearing off pants and the like I’d make a cute romper style outfit. But, that ain’t happening either. I do see a skirt and 50’s style top though.
