Please help-need advise on trim for skirt

Postby majors » Wed Oct 29, 2014 8:26 pm

Good Evening!

I am having a hard time deciding what I should do next on the skirt; the TV208 trained skirt ensemble. Should I add the pink knife pleating to cover the seam attaching the ruffles, or should I leave the seam alone? The seam bothers me; any other suggestions? :?
Thank you! :P

ok, comment from a novice.

I think without the trim. It distracts from the beautiful pleads and ruffle.

I'm not a fan of the pink trim, but I think you could do something a bit simpler - maybe a narrow bias strip? Bias folds show up pretty often in the trimming descriptions I've read.

I second the bias strip. If you have more of the turquoise, a 1/2" Flat stripe would look great.
