So the stripes aren’t quite as creepy as the ones on the other fabric my daughter liked. But the stripes are far from boring at the same time. My daughter selected a red, grey and black with bits of white jagged striped fabric. The off white is for the sleeves.
The ric-rack trim was a little cheaper than the sequin trim that the pattern calls for. It should also be quicker to sew on since I can use the machine. and the verigate mettallic color makes it look older and tarnished.
