I Want To Ride My Bicycle

It's Thursday so it's Crafty Ribbons Challenge Day - hooray!

The theme is Ribbon and Stitching.  The stitching can be real or fake, just as long as it's there somewhere.  I've decided to share an alteration with you...

I bought these shorts last year but I am 'the wrong shape' and whilst they fit perfectly on the hips they were far too big on the waist.  We took part of the waist band off and gathered in the fabric, then reattached it to the now-shorter-waistband.  The problem was there were a few rivets that had left holes - no problem really - we just covered them with ribbon!  I hate to dress the same as everyone else so I really love that no one will have a pair of shorts quite like these!

I used bicycle ribbon from the Vintage Butterfly range.

Do join in with the challenge if you get a moment this week...
