Ribbon Trim Top

Ever taken a look at a plain top that you own and love but just wish that there was something, anything, more to it? One word, friends...RIBBON. Even the simplest of tops can't help but succumb to this age-old impressionaire of all things ordinary.  Here is my latest victim.  What you need for this project is simple enough- two types of ribbon to easily trim the neckline,  fabric that is 1/2 inch wider to create a ruffle to back the wide ribbon with and, oh, lots of pins to keep everything in place while you're sewing it. Lots.  The fabric will fray with wear so make sure to have some Fray Check handy to keep it from unraveling.

Tea anyone?
