  • How to make an embellished dress. Ribbon Straps For A Dress - Step 1
    Step 1

    I started pinning the ribbons to the dress on the dress form. If you don't have one, don't worry, this can also be done without a dress form, you'll just need to pin the ribbons in the back, then put the dress on, and adjust the fit and length of the ribbons in the front.

  • Step 2

    Once I was happy with the position of my ribbons, I marked a line on the ribbons along the edge of the dress, so I'd know how to place them when I started sewing.

  • Step 3

    Before sewing the ribbons to the dress, I sewed the front part of the ribbons together so that the outer ribbons were slightly covering the middle ribbon. This helps to keep the ribbons in place when moving your arms.

  • Step 4

    Finally, sew the ribbons to the dress, and you're done!

Cute and clever! I've thought about doing this to a strapless dress of mine but I didn't think of using that many ribbons. It looks really neat and it looks like it's part of the actual design and not just something to keep the dress up.
