How to Tie the Perfect Bow on a Dress

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.

If the sash is not attached the the dress, sure the ends are even in the back.
