Embellished Cardi


 My Sister, Lo, came up for Market from Nevada. We were walking around Hobby Lobby and spotted this:

 Metallic Ruffle Ribbon

We pinned it to the instide edge of her cardi
sewed a straight seem along the entire thing (and no turning edges, because this stuff doesn't fray)
And this is what it looked like when we finished. (we added a couple buttons too)
Oh, and being the amazing sister that I am, I gave her my hair appointment with the best stylist on the planet, Shep.  Doesn't she look killer?
