An excerpt:

''Ribbons, because of the decorative quality inherent in their beauty of texture, color, and design, very naturally suggest themselves as trimmings for garments as well as for numerous other articles...It is knotted and looped and sewed into dainty rosettes for the decoration of infants' garments and accessories; it is made into bows, large ones for finishing sashes and trimming dresses, and smaller ones for adding daintiness to lingerie and children's garments; and it is fashioned into beautiful, naturalistic flowers.

Small, dainty flowers and buds of pastel ribbon always have a place in trimmings used on the lacy, feminine type of lingerie and on the dainty accessories of the boudoir and toilet. Others, similar in nature, of novelty ribbon, are much used on pillows and fancy bags, while larger flowers of quite a different type are effective as boutonnieres and corsages.''
