I love ric rac.My Mum used to sew it to all my dresses when I was small,and so it makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside. I'd been saving this jumbo red ric rac for a while,and think it works well on this reconstructed skirt.
I started with this dress



Only 5 from a vintage stall at a textile fair.I was drawn to the pretty floral fabric,but the dress was not appealing.
So I cut a chunk out of the middle,added ric rac,pockets and vintage buttons



Crappy self timed pic without my head!

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

Love Jeanette

Love it! I always think of ric rac as something for children, but this proves it works for adults too Smiley

I would never have thought of using rickrack on that skirt, but it is so perfect! Great that you found a reuse for that terrific fabric.
