circle veil edged in ribbon
A bride-to-be recently asked me to make a circle veil with wide ribbon trim on the edge. I made a small circle veil once, but this client wants a fingertip length. I can’t imagine how wide ribbon could navigate around the rounded edges of a circle… Anyone have an insight about this? Thanks.
The only way I can imagine doing this is with the wire-edged ribbon. You would draw up the ribbon on the inside of the curve.....you could remove the wire afterwards. I would think that a circle of this size would have very subtle curves.
You can, of course, make your own wire-edged ribbon by zigzagging over the wire, but I'd just go buy some already done........:)
1) What about petersham or real grosgrain ribbon (cotton or rayon/cotton)? These you can shrink to shape by pressing.
2) What about bias charmeuse or silk satin organza band? Silk satin organza would probably be easier to cut/press but may be too stiff.
