BOWS AS DRESS DETAIL

  • A simple sash with a bow knot, a bow in the style of a shoe lace bow, makes an important focal point on a dress. It can make a color statement by picking up one of the colors of a multi-color print or it can blend in to the dress using a matching color.
  • The sash can be made of wide ribbon cutting the ends on an angle for interest or made of fabric and sewn together. For a fabric sash, determine the length needed for the sash keeping in mind the length needed to go around the body, the length used up in the loops of the bow and knot and the length for the ends hanging down. Cut two lengths of fabric 1" wider and 1" longer than the finished size. Most likely the fabric will need to be pieced together to make it long enough so be sure to factor that in when purchasing the fabric. When piecing, cut four lengths, sew two narrow ends together and repeat, pressing the seams after sewing. Pin the two lengths together right sides facing and using a 1/2" seam allowance sew all around leaving a small opening for turning. Turn inside out, press and sew the opening shut.
  • To make the bow in the picture use ribbon or fabric and make two loops, sewing the ends together, one loop the width of the entire bow and one a bit smaller. Layer the loops with the smaller one on top and use a small piece of the same fabric or ribbon to make a small loop in the middle holding the layers together. To go around the waist, add an additional single layer of ribbon or fabric under the large loop and put it around the waist. Snaps or hook and eyes make a good closure for this type of sash.
