Here's my newest ruffle cuff and it's in a beautiful shantung silk -just like my last one. Only this one's a dark champagne gold that shimmers with the characteristic glow of this particular kind of silk.
It has a wide vintage cotton lace in antique white.
The edges are purposely left raw for a shabby chic feel.
I have finished cuffs off with stitched edges and the result is quite nice, but usually they tend to look much stiffer, without the flow that these -untreated- ones have.
I suppose it's simply a matter of taste.
The ribbon that secures the cuff to the wrist is natural cotton in a darkish camel beige.
I have some more golden silks I want to try out in these cuffs.
And I'm looking forward to doing some black ones with black lace again, like this one.
