I took a cue from Eva and added a colored band to the hem. However, I made the band extra-long, pinned it around evenly, and then just ruffled it as I went along.
My husband opined that I should use a bit of that solid poppy red elsewhere in the dress, so I used the last scrap as a belt. I was going to sew it to a buckle, but I like the spontaneous nature of the little square knot.
I did not paint my toes to match my dress, but I was amused by the view from my Sunday afternoon nap.
