More Layered Trim......
This print sort of swallowed up the blue trim until I tried narrow strips of red peeking out from behind.
The narrow ribbon created such a great pop that I decided to carry the red-blue to the top. Making microcord out of 1/2" wide grosgrain is not easy! Actually it wasn't much easier to make pencil welt out of the heavy, textured blue braid, either. I never layered welt before- I like it!
Although the pattern on the topper was carefully matched to the shade when looking straight on, from a lower sight line there seems to be a gap. The bottom row of red ribbon fills in the space and gives one last bit of pop.
