Another gift from the Inspiration Fairy

The Inspiration Fairy has just smacked me upside the head with her magic wand.

RUFFLES!

Ickle lime green ruffles!!!!

To edge the bra with. Only little ones, because I'm trying to keep this costume *reasonably* elegant and stylish, without it descending from fun and fruity to chavvy and cheesey. (Gosh, so many food metaphors, do you think I'm a bit hungry?)

This may change the way the costume goes, in terms of how I use my fabric for the hipscarf and mandeel. I'll have to wait and see how it goes with the bra and the dress first.

So I'm feeling all bouncy and excited about the direction this is taking!

Ruffles!
This is sounding cuter all of the time.

Re: Ruffles!
I think it's going to end up being pretty damn cute!

Squee!

Would you make the hip scarf ruffly too, kind of like: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65513266/bustle-devi-yoga-pants-with-bustle-skirt ?

That's what I'm wondering about. If there are ruffles on the bra, it makes sense to balance the costume out by putting ruffles on the lower half too. And if I'm matching properly, that means making the hip scarf in the apple print, which changes the original plan, which was to use the lime green for the hip and head scarves.

I probably wouldn't make the ruffles exactly like that- it would most likely be an edge ruffle, to match what I'm doing on the bra. But I'm remaining open to the Inspiration Fairy's thwacks!

Ruffles sound like an excellent idea. I can totally see ruffles on this costume, and maybe it would give you something to decorate/bling without decorating the whole costume...cause the apples are so cute that I'm not sure it needs much extra (?)
