You know I love those vintage surface details. They often look so luxurious, but when you break them down, they’re not hard to do. Often they involve making some bias tape, cording, or piping and sewing it on in an ingenious way.
But this one looks even easier than most! At first glance, it looks to be made with ric-rac. Upon closer inspection, I’m not 100% sure that it’s ric-rac, and not some other trim sewn in a wave pattern. But nevertheless, it would certainly work in ric-rac, don’t you think?
I’ve always thought ric-rac looked so cutesy, but this is actually quite elegant. The deep stormy blue color helps too. I just think this vine pattern is really amazing.
