how to get a better use of a big bodyline bow by making your Lolita outfit matching cuffs
I have two Bodyline JSK and both of them have super big attachable bows. They were way to big for me to wear since I found them to look really childish :( I looked like a cartoon character with in on the head or on the blouse. So I decided to remake one of them in to something more wearable. I choose the "Sweet Jewelry" bow to unripe first.
So now I have super cute my Lolita outfit matching cuffs and a bow that I actually will wear and won't look ridiculous;)

    Second, fold the top for laces to touch the print and sew it so it would stay that way. In my opinion it looks nice and the cuff are not so long anymore.

    I decide to make closure from Velcro tape. There was not enough fabric to sew the Velcro on the cuffs. So I cot a black wide ribbon and sewed it on the side of the cuff and then sewed the one part of Velcro on it.

    The other side that goes over was sewed on the cuff itself. So it nicely covered the ribbon and there was just enough fabric to cover my wrists.

    Hot glue or sew the pink ribbons ( or any other ribbons you want), then add the charms and some black/ white beads. The decoration is up to you. Do it as your heart finds it pleasant.

    You can make a smaller bow from the part that is left. I find this one smaller cutie much more attractive that his giant relative this all project was made of.

It's actually called unpicking, not unripping =) Cute, and such a great Idea! I don't have any (yet!) But I've heard Bodyline's bows are HUGE!
