This is what I get for putting so much energy into a muslin. Now I want to wear it, and further more I want it to be perfect. I sit myself down and think of all of the possible color combinations, then try to marry it with the stash, and think about what is already in my wardrobe that I can wear with it. As they say "No pressure".
Until I can come up with a satisfactory answer to these questions I'm posting all of the considerations made so far, so you can see that they are limitless.... where are those project runway limitations when I need them?
The first looks very Parisian to me, the combination of peach and high contrast black and white trim, the second is a bit funky, the third transparent and will need to be combined with something else to make it more interesting, the last is the one I started with but there's not enough yardage and there is damage. Making it out of self fabric trim is not an option, another possibility is to make a knit trim for it.
Funky ribbon and pearl sequins
misbehaving fringe... and too little yardage to complete this project.
I'll put this aside until the dust clears and work on another muslin until the muse strikes.
What I really want is this but the fabric is too lightweight to take all of these crystals.
