Decorative ribbon -- such a fun addition.
Ribbon and roses -- just a tiny touch of femininity.
An Added Pop of Color -- on busy prints adding a little addition of a plain fabric and some colorfulbias stands out well.
Narrow Eyelet & Ribbon -- added a little ways above the hemline. I use eyelet because it is sturdier than lace.
Bias and Wide Eyelet -- edge meets edge of dress. I try to have the eyelet edging have fabric behind it to make it sturdier.
Button & Bows -- a ribbon border with an added bow topped with a button. This is my newest design and I have added it to the last several dresses I have made. It happened by accident as I had a tiny piece of ribbon left and hated to throw it away, so I folded it into a bow. Now I'm thinking I will use this as my "signature" on each dress I make.
I picture the little girl reaching down during a time of stress and feeling the different textures at her hemline or playing with the button. I hope she loves it!
