For many years, Anagrassia customers have asked how we tie our satin and silk sashes on the flower girl and First Holy Communion dresses. We finally found time to create a short video tutorial on how we make the bows.
Here are some screenshots of the YouTube video posted above here.
Make sure the sash is smooth and straight across the waist. (Fold it in half if you want a thin sash around the waist.)
If the sash is not attached the the dress, sure the ends are even in the back.
Cross the left side over the right and roll it around the right side
Tighten the knot by pulling on both ends
Make two loops ("ears") with both sash ends
Wrap one loop ("ear") over and around the other loop ("ear")
Pull through the loop to create to small ears and pull to secure a tight knot
(You will adjust the size of the loops/ears later)
Wrap the sash ends around the knot; under and around the back of the knot
At this point, you can adjust the "ears" or loops to the size you wish
If the sash ends are too long, you can wrap them around the knot again (and again)
(Thank you Gigi, Nik, & Vanka for helping Mary Grace put this video together!)
