"Very cool find! Thanks for sharing this with all of us! Fast shipping!"
"...when a gown is finished, difficulty is seldom encountered in deciding how to strengthen or enhance it by means of ribbon ornaments or trimmings of certain colors or combinations of colors. Thus, a rose, a rosette, or a bow at the waist line, a tiny bud at the shoulder, or a little narrow strip of attractively finished ribbon tastefully arranged around the neck will oftentimes add a smartness to a frock that is difficult to obtain in any other way... Bows for little girls' dresses, for sashes, and for the hair are practically a necessity. For example, there is nothing prettier to behold than a dainty frock neatly made and trimmed with attractive bows of delicate pink, orchid, or blue. Many times a soft yellow or cream is used for such purposes... Lingerie garments, likewise, offer great possibilities for the use of ribbon trimmings. Seldom is an elaborate night dress, corset cover, or petticoat made without ribbon placed somewhere upon it... "
The antique and vintage ribbons, threads, fabrics, tools, etc., can be found on Atomic Mall quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a near by fabric, craft or hobby store
