This is the first piece of clothing I've ever successfully made without the help of a tutorial or pattern, I was just seized by inspiration the other day and made it, and for once it actually turned out the way it looked in my head (more or less). I used a really nice houndstooth fabric I had gotten for $1/yard at a local fabric store last summer... I still have lots of it left so I think this shirt probably cost about $0.40.






I made it in a few hours in order to wear it out that night, but now that I've worn it I almost feel like it needs a little something more. I was thinking about adding a white ribbon under the bust, I have two different sizes:




Or I have this thin brown binding that I think might look good if I trimmed the detail with it, but I'm undecided if I should do any of these three things, and if so, which one to do. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated Smiley Here's as close as approximation as I could get of my binding idea:

I like the brown piping, I think it enhances the unique shapes and such and really makes it pop.

I think I like the brown with the shirt.  I like how it would accentuate the details...

I have to agree that the brown embelishment would be good!  Great job on the shirt.  I wish I could sew like that.

Maybe the brown on just the top edges, rather than along the sides and underneath as well?
