Modern Dressmaking : Ribbon Trimmings and Flowers 1916

Mary Brooks Picken, Department of Millinery


Spiral Bound Book Republication, 2007

pages 65

The art of fashioning decorative accents with ribbons is enjoying a revival among today's crafters, who find it the perfect way to add lovely touches to clothing, personal items, household accessories, and more.
This profusely illustrated how-to book describes how to fold and sew lengths of ribbon to create dramatic ruffles, bows, and bands. You'll also learn how to use ribbon to fashion appealing florals; daisies, chrysanthemums, rosebuds, violets, petunias, dahlias, sunflowers, and even complete bouquets. Then use these charming ribbon creations to trim a hat, decorate baby clothes and lingerie, add a luxurious touch to lampshades and cushions, or embellish shoes, baby carriages, blankets, coat hangers, and much more.
