Easy Dress Tutorial with Perfect Fashion Bows
The Best Ways to Wear Fashion Bows - and DIY it!

Materials:

  • Fabric. I used this super yummy floral from Riley Blake Designs. Every time I see it, I think of Dolce and Gabbana. It definitely has a runway feel to it, right?
  • A dress of your choice – YES this works for anything (I used Vogue pattern 8766);
  • Ribbon or fabric cut and sewn together in a ribbon like fashion;
  • sewing tools, pins, needles, thread and iron;
  • paper and pencil for bow template;

Directions:

  1. First, I like to play around with the bow and find a good bow like shape – without tying it. There is zero tying and ironing it in place. The best way to keep a consistent shape with each bow is creating a template.As you can see in the photo below, I created the first bow, pressed it in place and then outline the shape so I could recreate the same shape for each bow (there’s a video at the end of this post that will walk you through the process).Do not forget to finish the ends of your ribbon.

  2. Lay all your bows in place; I used the center front-line of my dress.

  3. Pin the bows in place on a flat and smooth surface. I used a a bias trim to attach my bows in place that is then sewn along the center front-line. This is optional because there are sooooo many ways to embellish this look!

  4. Sew into place. Remember to remove your pins as you sew. Nothing makes a sewing machine MORE angry then sewing on a pinning needle, ouch.You may also want to hand sew the inside of your bows (under the fold) on to your garment so it doesn’t flap around too much.
