Flower girl dress help
Help, please. I am making the flower girls dresses for my daughters wedding. We bought a sash/belt in the color matching the bridesmaids dresses and I am attaching these to the flower girls dress. My daughter doesn’t like tieing the belt in a bow in the back. Does anyone have an idea on how to tie the belt in the back. I have tried to search the internet for a website giving instructions on different ways to tie or finish a bow but could not find any. I would appreciate any help. Thanks, Cathy
You could tie a simple square knot like a bow only with out the loops (ask me )
you could pin the ties together with a decorative pin (pin backs are available at Wal-mart or Michael's crafts... hot glue silk flowers on....make a ribbon rose of the same fabric as the ties, or contrasting, and sew that to the pin.....make a beaded something for the pin...etc.....)
Hope this helps,

You could make the bow separate first and then fasten it to the sash and close the sash with snaps or hooks and eyes. This way bows can all be exactly alike.
Have you tried tying it in a square know with the under tail brought up over the knot from behind? (Think: Ascot)
If your bride doesn't want "tails" hanging down the back you can get a nice tailored finish by using two buttons and buttonholes 4-6 in apart in the back. If the sash is very wide, you might need to make two sets. Have you considered tying them in the front? God bless you Galey
