For the yellow fashion fabric I went with a lighter yellow ribbon with white polka dots instead of the yellow ribbon I initially thought about using. And the ribbon with the white and cream side is actually a taupe colour but somehow it looks more on the pink side in the photograph.
The pattern is still on my favourite list but I should mention that I found on the smaller size combination that some of the notches did not match up correctly. I found the same issue on this size combination as well. But there is no need for alarm because this is a well drafted pattern that is easy to put together even without any notches.
