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?

Okay, first of all, your hair? AMAZING. I love it. I know I'm supposed to be looking at the sweater, but I keep just staring at your hairdo--I LOVE it! So cute! And the sweater's great, too ;-) But that HAIR! Gorgeous!

Such a great idea. I don't know if I could pull off the gold metallic as well as your sister, but she rocks it.
