I was running errands a few days ago and ended up at one of my favorite sewing shops- the Nimble Thimble. For those of you who live in the Central PA area, the Nimble Thimble is located downtown on Market Street and it is owned by the nicest couple in town. Seriously, they are so sweet. Their prices are fabulous, too. Sewing machine maintenance is less than $40 and they sharpen scissors for $3 per pair. Also, they guarantee that the scissors will cut beautifully or it's free. I was there picking up a handful of notions when I saw this really interesting fabric- the different shades of grey and orange drew me in. I got a couple of yards of it and threw this dress together later that afternoon. I've been making this same dress for weeks (as you all have seen and you're probably as sick of this dress style as I am), so I knew I wanted to do some small embellishment to make it a little different. The ribbon ripples kind of remind me of seaweed or a sea anemone or something, but ultimately, I really like them.
I also kept my accessories to a minimum- just my nude wedges and my baubles cocktail ring.
