Default Re: How can I improve

I don't need to answer anonymously - I think it needs minor tweaking and you're there.

For me, the biggest things that stand out are:

- get the top and bottom bows closer to the same size
- wider ribbon spikes

both of which people have already mentioned, but also

- The top bow (at least, and maybe even the bottom bow a bit) needs to be folded in a more boutique style to get the look you're going for. Right now, the loops are flatter rather than "perky," like when you use a boutique fold, and I think that is a big part of that look on these stacked bows.

I still can't fold these right, but I still know HOW to do it - just the actual doing of it that I don't have yet, lol, so take my advice with a grain of salt!

Hope that helps some!
