Blue, not White Topstitching
I'm sure you are dying to know what I decided on the topstitching of Ellen's skirt, right? Well, probably not, but I'll tell you anyway. Thank you to each of you who left a comment to help me decide.
After reading your comments, I was gung-ho set on using white thread; I thought it would look fabulous. Both Cindy and Jessica asked what Ellen liked best, so I decided to ask her. Ellen's first reaction was "No way, Mom! I do not want white thread. If you have to top stitch, do it in blue." I tried convincing her, and she started to waver. Okay, I was being a bit persuasive in my arguments for white topstitching... and I started to feel guilty. :-)
As you can see, I ended up using navy blue thread for the topstitching. I'm happy. Ellen is happy. The skirt is happy. Happy days are here again. Yes, I'm being silly, but I am pleased with the way the skirt came out. I know that Ellen will get a lot of wear out of it.
