Now I wasn't in love with the ribbon options offered by my local retail outlets, but made the best of it with a patterned ribbon in citrus colors. The original plan had turquoise on the bottom, but it just didn't work for me.
So is started over with orange on the bottom and went for three wider bands of equal size.
The inspiration skirt, as well as the sample in Sarah's tutorial was solid with a nice gradient of dark to light pastel colors. Mine is color blocked with a lattice design, and guess what? I love it!
The colors look a little grayer in the picture than in person. Matching up the lattice design was a little tedious, but well worth the effort.
The side is only basted since I'm determined to stick with the sew-along and wait patiently for further instructions on Monday.
