You have probably noticed, ‘cause in every shop and every street you see clothes that have those sports stripes, striped elastic, striped ribbons on the sides, or striped cuffs. So when I was thinking of a way to brighten up my simple new summer dress (from last blog), this was the way to go. I decided to attach such a striped ribbon to the side & shoulder seams.
