So here is the dress I am making for the Embellishment challenge:
It's Colette Pattern's Crepe dress and I decided to have a go at piping. But now that it's finished, I feel like it needs something else. I'm really regretting making self fabric ties, but I also don't want to take the whole thing apart to replace the ties.
Hmm...you really wouldn't have to take apart much to replace the ties. Just open the seams around the ties and replace with others. Since your piping is dark, perhaps ties could be made to match?
If you really don't want to do that, what about stitching a row or two of ribbon around the bottom of the skirt? Or some ric-rac?
Amy... great idea... probably a couple rows of dark matching ric rack would do the trick.. Or like the others have said..it would be real simple to just open up a little spot and replace the belts with a dark one..
The dress is really pretty, and I love the fabric. Pretty choice.
