I'm recycling a dress into something wearable for Christmas. (It used to have a big leopard print collar and cuffs...yuck). I re-fashioned a vintage belt yesterday with some green satin to give a pop of color. Now I need to lengthen the dress (and coordinate with my choir colors) for church...can't be on stage with a dress over the knees! Don't want to show the entire church (we expect around 10,000 people for Christmas Eve services) all my business! LOL What do you think of adding a band of green satin at the hem and around the cuffs? I also thought I might make some green satin piping for the neckline. I think I've been staring at it for too long, because I cannot make up my mind.
Give me some honest opinions, please. You won't hurt my feelings.
Oh, and by the way, I realize the band is wonky at the moment. I promise to sew it on straight. :o)
