I am finally getting around to making up a cute vintage pinafore dress for Miss C but have hit a snag.
I have a purplish pinkish pinwale cord fabric but cannot match the colour to a thread for the topstitching.
So when faced with the same problem do you go a shade darker or lighter when choosing the thread?
I could of course just run up a sample using 2 different colours and see what looks best, that would be kinda smart, but I thought polling the sewing/blogging populace might be fun!
So, opinions please!
Technically challenged note: poll is located on sidebar to the right of this post. I could not for the life of me figure out how to put it into the actual post!
